Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

"Each page is delightful. These are premium cat drawings, quite worthy of this handsome hardcover book."
--Newcity Lit

"David Yow is part punk, part cat lady."
--Brooklyn Paper

"Fortunately, if you’ve been looking for a less embarrassing thing than Cat Fancy to adorn your coffee table, I’ve got good news: David Yow has just the book for you."
--Verbicide Magazine

"You could say Yow's book is the cat's MeYow. Snap it up fast cat peeps."
--Cat Wisdom 101

"Something good to read with your kids."
--The Big Takeover

"Surely you know crazy cat people like me who could use a hardback kitty-art book. Indulge them. They'll thank you--after they're done giggling--I'm sure of it."
--Persephone Magazine

"Feeling down? Leafing through this book is sure to make you smile! It is the purrfect gift for cat lovers of all ages and one you will want to turn the pages of again and again! It's also purrfect cocktail party fodder, keep this just a paw's reach away on your coffee-table, you have an instant conversation starter!"
--Cat Chat with Caren and Cody

"Cats and puns illustrated by a musician? It's like the Book Gods sensed a need in my life and amply provided."
--The Cannonball Read

--Socrates' Book Reviews, "5-kitten" review

"Copycat is a fun and whimsical book that any cat lover will enjoy."
--Bergers Book Reviews

"Hey David, it's me BUB. I read your book, and can't deny that I didn't read the whole thing in the first sitting. 'Catsup' and 'Catastrophe' are worth the price of admission alone. WOW YOW, MEOW."
--Lil BUB, Internet cat celebrity

David Yow's cat portraits, captured here for the first time in book form, are bold, striking, hilarious, and beautiful. Each portrait is based around a pun, but they capture so much more than wordplay. All cat lovers will find something to relish in this gorgeous coffee-table book, which is the perfect gift for cat enthusiasts, animal lovers, and anyone with a playful sense of humor.

About the book, David Yow says: "I love cats. Always have. The only time I didn't have a cat was a brief hell in Chicago where I lived in an apartment whose landlord didn't allow them. At that place, I had a life-sized cardboard cutout of a cat which I named Toody. I also love wordplay. I'm the only adult I hang out with who still gets a kick out of puns. I make up palindromes. I used to write songs and poems (these days, I leave that for the songwriters and poets); in this book of cat-pun drawings, I have made a concerted effort to come up with ideas that range from really funny to really amusing. The entire litter of animals in this book are line drawings that are 'colored in' with photographic textures, and each cat is dropped into a photographic setting. Yep, that's the truth."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Copycat is the Cat's MeYow 10 août 2014
Par Layla Morgan Wilde - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
In the world of cat books there are many copycats so it's a thrill to find something as fresh and original as COPYCAT And A Litter Of Other Cats by David Yow. The hefty, hardcover art book from indie Brooklyn-based publisher Akashic Books defies being CATegorized. Clever, cute and quirky cat puns are illustrated in Yow's unique, multi-media graphic style. Any of the images would work on t-shirts fit for hipster cat lovers from coast to coast. The book is more edgy than Hello Kitty cute i.e. the S & M Catsuit on page 149. The only real cat referenced is Grumpy Cat and it's worth the price of admission.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Me Yow 8 août 2014
Par Bob - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is an awesome book. Over 70 illustrations of cats that involve a cat pun or play on words. Most are pretty funny. The illustrations are really cool and if you look closely, you can see photos of different textures (hair, gravel, fabric, etc) are used to create parts of the cats. This is not what you would expect from the madman who used to front the amazing band, The Jesus Lizard, but it is really cool nonetheless.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Clever, Amusing, and Amazing Work of Art 10 août 2014
Par Jeffrey Gawel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Most people know of David Yow from his years of fronting the power house known as The Jesus Lizard in the late 80's and 90's (happy memories), but most people probably don't know that his artistic talents extend way beyond music and into painting, digital and mixed media, acting, etc. "Copycat: And A Litter of Other Cats" is one example of his work, and it really is an awesome little book! I was lucky enough to get one of the advanced copies and I knew that it would be great - but when it arrived, as usual, it exceeded all expectations. All of the cats + puns are, at a minimum, amusing; many are downright hilarious; a few might make you think for a few seconds (that's a good thing); and ALL are beautifully rendered and presented. David's incorporation of textures and such into the depictions is really amazing and imbues each drawing with a little bit of personality. Even the cover work is solid, as is the overall presentation. This is a great book for anyone's collection, a must-have for the cat people, and pretty much the perfect gift for everyone else out there. Great job, David!
