The term "Cat Lady" can evoke the image of an unfashionable, unkempt and slightly unhinged spinster hoarding multiple cats.
Cat Lady Chic serves as an antidote to this unflattering point of view.
This small, gift book celebrates the Cat Lady with a compilation of artful, playful and sophisticated images of some of the most renowned, beautiful and accomplished women in modern history with the cats they love.
The volume features a sharp, funny introductory essay on the "Cat Lady" conundrum along with scores of photographs of felines paired with famous feline fans across a spectrum of backgrounds, including figures such as Audrey Hepburn, Georgia O'Keeffe, Nina Simone, Marilyn Monroe, Zelda Fitzgerald, Lana DelRey, Lauren Bacall, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly and more.
There are also a few fine art representations from the 19th and 20th centuries, placed throughout.
