Cats takes on an almost three-dimensional form to present moments "stolen" by expert photographers from the everyday lives of these beloved animals. Sinuous and agile, playful, intelligent, and pitiless, cats of all stripes come alive in these splendid color photographs. Here we see cats as we think we know them, but there are plenty of surprises as well. Accompanied by the writings of leading zoologists and journalists, these images remind us that our cuddly companions have not lost all the instincts of their cousins in the wild, namely lions, tigers, and leopards. This book is a pleasure to leaf through and a reward to study. Its creative photographic portrayal of cats will fascinate readers of all ages, while young readers will especially enjoy the feel of the book's "cube format," chock-full of images that they will treasure for years to come.

Synopsis:

Cats have always been important to humans, symbolizing qualities such as tenderness, discretion and elegance. Wild and nomadic, or domestic and cuddly, they are the favourite animals of those who appreciate detachment and independence, but also affection. Though small compared to their large cousins in the wild, cats have characteristics in common with lions, leopards and tigers: they are predators, even if their instinct is blunted by domestic life, and are sinuous and agile, playful, intelligent and pitiless. Innovative in format and size, this book offers an almost three-dimensional form to present the pictures 'stolen' by specialized photographers from the everyday lives of these animals. The excellent photographs and texts written by leading zoologists and specialized journalists are brought together in an unusual 'cube' format that creates an elegant and ideal gift book, a pleasure to leaf through and a reward to study. This latest title in the best selling "Cube Books" series, is an ideal gift for cat lovers everywhere. It contains over 800 pages with high quality photography.
