More About the Author

Julie Jackson is the creator of Kitty Wigs and its companion web site (kittywigs.com), where she sells upscale hairpieces for special felines. 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 Japanese, Korean and a digital version. There is also a boxed set of greeting cards by Papyrus.

When not fussing with kitties, Julie is also the force behind Subversive Cross Stitch (subversivecrossstitch.com), a modern craft meme that pairs old-fashioned samplers with updated snarky sentiments. Along with the book "Subversive Cross Stitch: 33 Designs for Your Surly Side", her kits, cards and other gift items bearing Subversive designs can be found online and in retail stores around the world.

Julie is also a columnist for Craft magazine and an occasional copywriter/brainstormer for the kooky folks at Blue Q.

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!

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.

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.
