More About the Author

In 2003, Julie Jackson created Subversive Cross Stitch, a bedrock of the modern craft movement that pairs old-fashioned samplers with snarky sentiments. She has authored two cross stitch books: "Subversive Cross Stitch: 50 F*cking Clever Designs For Your Sassy Side" (powerHouse Books, 2015) and "Subversive Cross Stitch: 33 Designs for Your Surly Side" (Chronicle Books, 2006), which was reprinted in a Dutch version in 2009. Her kits, cards, and other gift items bearing Subversive designs can be found online and in retail stores around the world. Kits, supplies, advice, and hundreds of PDF patterns can be found on her site, subversivecrossstitch.com.

Julie also created Kitty Wigs, an early contender in the online world of cat memes. Kitty Wigs has been featured in fashion layouts for Harper's Bazaar Japan and CosmoGirl; and on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 and BBC's Graham Norton. Her book "Glamourpuss: The Enchanting World of Kitty Wigs", has been seen in People magazine, on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, and even in the National Enquirer. The book is available in several languages and as a digital version.

Julie is a former columnist for Craft magazine, and a long-time copywriter/brainstormer for the kooky folks at Blue Q.

Format: Hardcover
It's understandable that cats can't always sport bangs, an updo, or a
bob. But when they're not chasing down their prey, it only makes sense
for them to spend their downtime purrfectly coiffed. Glamourpuss gives
us a brilliant look into the lives of our feline friends' emotional
states, and we realize that their lives are pretty challenging after
all. The high-society kitties exposed in Glamourpuss will charm you as
you turn from one beautiful photograph to the next, and the
accompanying captions provide further insight into what is undoubtedly
the fantastic life being a cat.

You might ask yourself, "Who would want a book about cats wearing wigs?" and if you're honest with yourself of course you'd have to answer, "Everyone, natch!". So quit talking to yourself already and order this book!

When I first heard about KittyWigs, I thought it was just a brilliant conceptual art project. When I realized they were actually selling wigs for cats, I was knocked out.

The book lives up to its illustrious origins with wonderful, full-color photos accompanied by Jackson's signature snarkiness; and cats finally get the serious portraiture they richly deserve.

Jill Johnson's photography is outstanding and really makes this a gem of a book. Once I'm done pouring over page after page of delightful feline portraits, this book is going on the shelf right next to Elliott Erwitt's gem, "Dog, Dogs", and that's high praise indeed!!
