Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats

Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by TS Eliot / Faber & Faber

This was a dream commission! I made a point of not looking at either of the original editions before starting this project, with illustrations by Nicolas Bentley and Edward Gorey. As well as wanting to give my own fresh perspective, I was a bit daunted by such brilliant artists.

It has been beautifully designed by Emma Eldridge, complete with a UV spot coat on the cover.

Amazon Customers

– A really charming book with amusing illustrations. I can highly recommend this book for all ages, and it makes a great gift.

– Bought as a gift for a fan of the musical ‘Cats’ as also into poetry. These poems are beautifully illustrated and the poems are laid out well.

– Still as fresh as ever and the cartoons are perfect for the poet’s style. May have to buy a second copy for myself.
