Yes, I must admit: I am a cat lover. We have three cats at home and they are irresistable. A few years ago I found the book “Catdreams” by B. Kliban. A real nice “cattoonbook” in whitch I certainly recognize our cats characters. The Cat of Kliban is loved bij millions.

Cat dreams. Cat plays the trombone. Cat shops, eats spaghetti, and paint. Cat boxes and dances and wrestles.And, of course, Cat sleeps, sunbathes and goes fishing…
In 1970 Kliban introduced the now-classic book Cat.
Never before had we met a cat who could do human things and still seem like a cat.
CatDreams brings together the joyfully mesmerizing paintings Kliban executed for a series of calendars published between 1977 and 1986 and places them toghether with many of his irresistible cartoon drawings.

B. “Hap” Kliban (1935-1990) was an internationally known American cartoonist, humourist, and illustrator. He was a regular contributor to Playboy magazine for more than thirty years and he wrote and drew many books. Pomegranate publishes his paintings of Cat in calendars and in the book of postcards Kliban’s Cats.
