CAIRO BOOKS's Description
You may think you know Judy Chicago -- but it's time to take another look.
Kitty City is a celebration of Chicago's life with these delightfully
independent creatures. With a lavish design that evokes a contemporary version
of illuminated manuscripts, Chicago tells this charming real-life story by
adapting the concept of the Book of Hours, which first gained popularity in the
early 1400's as intricately illustrated private devotional books, containing
texts and prayers for each hour of the day -- meant to inspire and provide
points of reflection for their owners.
Cat lovers will recognize the familiar routine. The day begins with "6 A.M:
Cat Alarm Clocks" and quickly moves to "7 A.M: Chowtime" and "8 A.M: Kitty
Clean Up." The cycle continues through snacks and grooming, naps and play
before ending with "5 AM: Home is Where the Cat Is." Interspersed amount these
hourly activities are thought-provoking "Feline Fact" pages as well as
vignettes that highlight a number of the kitty companions that Chicago has
lived with since the early 60's when she adopted her first stray kitten.
With exquisite full-color illustrations throughout -- including 36 new Judy
Chicago watercolors created for this project -- Kitty City is breathtaking art
in an exquisite package, a companion to be treasured by cat lovers and art
