Format: Hardcover
In the world of cat books there are many copycats so it's a thrill to find something as fresh and original as COPYCAT And A Litter Of Other Cats by David Yow. The hefty, hardcover art book from indie Brooklyn-based publisher Akashic Books defies being CATegorized. Clever, cute and quirky cat puns are illustrated in Yow's unique, multi-media graphic style. Any of the images would work on t-shirts fit for hipster cat lovers from coast to coast. The book is more edgy than Hello Kitty cute i.e. the S & M Catsuit on page 149. The only real cat referenced is Grumpy Cat and it's worth the price of admission.

By Mark on August 8, 2014
Format: Hardcover
This is an awesome book. Over 70 illustrations of cats that involve a cat pun or play on words. Most are pretty funny. The illustrations are really cool and if you look closely, you can see photos of different textures (hair, gravel, fabric, etc) are used to create parts of the cats. This is not what you would expect from the madman who used to front the amazing band, The Jesus Lizard, but it is really cool nonetheless.

Most people know of David Yow from his years of fronting the power house known as The Jesus Lizard in the late 80's and 90's (happy memories), but most people probably don't know that his artistic talents extend way beyond music and into painting, digital and mixed media, acting, etc. "Copycat: And A Litter of Other Cats" is one example of his work, and it really is an awesome little book! I was lucky enough to get one of the advanced copies and I knew that it would be great - but when it arrived, as usual, it exceeded all expectations. All of the cats + puns are, at a minimum, amusing; many are downright hilarious; a few might make you think for a few seconds (that's a good thing); and ALL are beautifully rendered and presented. David's incorporation of textures and such into the depictions is really amazing and imbues each drawing with a little bit of personality. Even the cover work is solid, as is the overall presentation. This is a great book for anyone's collection, a must-have for the cat people, and pretty much the perfect gift for everyone else out there. Great job, David!
