From the far-off days of his boyhood at Creswick until his death in 1969, Norman Lindsay was a keen observer and lover of cats. During his last three decades at Springwood, it could be said that he collected cats of all descriptions; many roamed in the sheds, stables, garden and bushland, with a few in the house. Only one was specially chosen to be the Studio Cat.
Norman Lindsay: Artful Cats contains pictures which have never before been published and rare family photographs from the Lindsay and Stewart estates. There are drawings and paintings of cats in all guises, with particular emphasis on Studio Cat Fuzz Buzz, Cat Stories and the wonderful Whimsical Cats, all of which display the full range of Norman's wit and imagination. The chapter of letters from Norman to Margaret Coen and Meg Stewart provides a rare insight into Norman's empathy with his cat family. Liberally illustrated in both colour and black and white, Artful Cats is the definitive book on Norman Lindsay's cats and a must for every cat lover.
