The Mediterranean Cat Paperback – March 1, 1998
Customers who bought this item also bought
Hans Silvester's cats have clawed themselves an assured niche in the cute-cat book world. The reissue of The Mediterranean Cat, as well as Cats in the Sun and Asleep in the Sun, makes for three beautiful photography books, exquisitely portraying the cats of the Greek Islands as they patrol this sun-drenched landscape. The felines of The Mediterranean Cat are an eclectic bunch. Some are a little rough and tumble, the end result of a territorial battle over the best spot in the sun. Others are regal, as they sit nose in air on an honored whitewashed doorstep, or slink up a step with a prized (and no doubt stolen) fish in tow. Here are tabbies and Russian blues, cats with pristine white fur, others with matted orange. Some are wild and feisty, others are well fed and tended to by a caring Greek household. Yet all retain their independence and self-assured aloofness. The Greek fishing boats and sunny promenades, the cobblestone streets and high rooftops all belong to the cats. --Naomi Gesinger

Silvester's use of lighting, color, camera angles - and obvious patience - illuminates the personalities of this secret society. The photographs make one feel like an anthropologist eavesdropping unseen on their world.
This volume will satisfy those who admire cats, art, photography, the Mediterranean, architecture; or those who simply like to escape to a new world for a time.
After a year with his "Cats in the Sun" calendar, I'm looking for the year 2000 edition. Does it exist?
