Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Lewis Blackwell has worked as a leading author, editor, and creative director in photography, winning international recognition with talks, exhibitions, and books. The Life and Love of Cats is a follow-up to his award-winning and bestselling The Life and Love of Trees, which led to a feature on the Ellen show and other prominent coverage.


More About the Author

Lewis Blackwell likes to make beautiful books with inspiring ideas. Whether it is his passion for trees, which led to the bestselling Life and Love of Trees (celebrated on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and featured on oprah.com, among others) or more arcane delights in the history of typography and vernacular signage (20th Century Type and Ed Fella Letters on America), or sharing his powerful insights from the top table in photography (Photowisdom), the resulting books are always highly visual, original in thought and word, and accessible.
Lewis finds the perfect project for a book typically combines a great subject to investigate with fascinating people to work with and remarkable places to visit. He is currently working on two projects that will take him around the world, from the depths of nature to the heights of technology.

Format: Hardcover
The cover image on this book is very indicative of the amazing photos one finds inside. It is impossible to see this gorgeous book and not pick it up to browse. I was a little disappointed in the text layout in comparison to the beautiful images, though. Some pages have 6 words (rather trite phrases in the middle of blank spreads -- the attribution/explanation for each is in an appendix at the end of the book, which was not immediately obvious and got old quickly), others had more like 300 words in tiny print, which seemed even smaller compared to the oversized photos.

It also would have been more useful to identify the breed of cat in a photo caption rather than alphabetically at the end of the book, which doesn't make it easy to identify them by photo rather than by name. But let's face it: we're not buying this book for the text, and the images will delight any person who is even remotely fond of felines or photography. A very worthwhile purchase.

Every cat lover will enjoy this book. Breath-taking photos. Of course, the fact that my cat looks like the cover model helped me choose this great book as a special gift to myself.

The book is beautiful. A great gift for cat lovers. The photography is stunning. A nice coffee table book, and an informative book about cats, things I didn't even know, and I have had cats all my life. I recommend this book, and you can't beat the price!

Anyone who has a friend who thinks they are not masculine because of their feline love or has been called the "crazy cat lady" should buy this book and proudly display it! Not only is it beautiful, it's quite validating.
