Why Cats Paint: a theory of feline aesthetics
Busch and Silver
Submitter: I found this while looking though my local library’s book sale. I picked it up out of interest and I started laughing.
Holly: Who knew cats could paint? This is hilarious!! Is it just me, or do some of the cats in these pictures look a little fake? I’m sure they’re creative geniuses, though. Fluff, in the last picture, doesn’t just play with wool. He “constructs creative installations.” Of course he does. The book sale is a good place for it, but there are quite a few libraries out there with this book in the collection.
Mary: I suppose we wouldn’t be librarians without a couple of cat references. I personally am owned by two lovely cats named Roberta and Fred. Any cat book intrigues me: who in their right mind would be patient enough to photograph cats doing art? Who has that kind of time?
