WHY CATS PAINT: A theory of feline aesthetics
by Heather Busch and Burton Silver. Adorable color photos by the Authors. Condition: NEW 1994 Ten Speed large soft cover, second printing. Tiny shelf wear. Interior perfect. Content: An unprecedented photographic record of cat creativity that will intrigue cat-lovers and art-lovers alike. As far as we know, no theory of feline aesthetics has yet been presented, at least not with such remarkable clarity and thorough documentation. Reviewer: "The writing style mimics most art criticism and art history pieces, so if you're familiar with that genre, you'll appreciate the genius of this book. It pokes fun at art critism while playing on most people's bafflement as to what constitutes art. This book is a joke, although it's so flawlessly constructed you can't be sure at first. The cat metaphor makes a great commentary on the ridiculousness of much art writing. Even if you've never been forced to read ridiculous art criticism, you'll appreciate this book if you love cats."
