A collection of Susan Herbert's feline versions of famous Pre-Raphaelite paintings. Paintings by artists such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones and William Holman Hunt can be viewed in a new way when their protagonists are cats. The Beggar Maid, "more beautiful than day" in Tennyson's poem, takes on a particularly touching relationship with King Cophetua, while Medea gives new meaning to the word enchantress as she prepares the ingredients for a spell. And were ever two creatures so frightened and abandoned as the two cat princes wickedly imprisoned in the Tower? A special feature of this book is its inclusion of small black-and-white reproductions of all the original paintings which have inspired Susan Herbert.
