A super vintage hardback title from 1994 - A Catland Companion is packed full of Victorian-era cat illustrations. The late 19th and early 20th century was the height of fashion for anthropomorphised cats in art, stationery, advertisements & book illustration, made famous by artists such as Louis Wain, Helena Maguire & Henrietta Ronner. 

Catland is a magical world created by Raphael Tuck and Louis Wain from the 1880s onwards and is a magical world that can only be visited by postcards, advertisements, book illustrations and prints.

"A Catland Companion allows the reader to make a brief visit there once again....Cats can be seen here at play throughout the seasons. From ice-skating in January through holidaymaking at the seaside in summer, to apple-bobbing at Halloween." (Includes Christmas cats).

Contents: Snowtime Cats; Valentine Cats; Musical Cats; Haute Cature; Cats at School; Sporting Cats; Seaside Cats; Famous Cats; Domestic Cats; Halloween Cats; Shopping Cats; Christmas Cats.
