Mews: #PetsInPortraits Book Review and Competition Reminder

Katzenworld

Hello everyone,

With only days to go until the closure of the #PetsInPortraits competition we thought it would be a good idea to have a sneak peak at the book behind the competition!

The book is filled with over 80 photos of portraits that feature not just our favourite felines but also other animals. 🙂 For each of the featured artworks the book contains a wealth of information about the famous person and their relationship to their pet. Not just do you find out historical info but some not so well known fun facts! Additionally info on the photographer / artist behind the photo / portrait can be found for each of them.

Below are just some of the examples of feline presence in what strikes us a fantastic collection of famous pet history (Who wouldn’t love cute animals and their human companions. 😉 )
