Artists and Their Cats
Best price for this book: $ 9.11
Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo . . . so many great artists have shared one very special love: the companionship of cats. Gathered here for the first time are behind-thescenes stories of more than 50 famous artists and their feline friends. From Salvador Dali's pet ocelot Babou to John Lennon and Yoko Ono's menagerie of cats, including Salt (who was black) and Pepper (who was white), Artists and Their Cats captures these endearing friendships in charming photographs and engaging text, and reveals what creative souls and the animals best known for their independent spirits have in common. In this clever compilation, art aficionados will discover a softer side of their favorite artists, and cat lovers will enjoy a whole new way to celebrate their favorite furry friends.
Sudden Storm: A Wendigo Reader
Best price for this book: $ 0
The book's thirteen essays explore Wendigo mythology from a cryptozoological point of view, where the being has been portrayed as a ferocious yeti-like monster, a half man-half stag creature, a troll or the wind itself. 'Sudden Storm' features full-color artwork by prominent illustrators, bringing many iterations of the elusive creature to the page, implicitly posing the question: How do we conceptualize both the malevolent and benevolent aspects of the Wendigo? It's a fun read for monster and horror fans, Larry Fessenden fans and people that like pop-culture things. In fact, there's probably not another cool book dedicated to the subject.
