'Star Cats' will appeal to all cat-lovers who are attuned to the behavior of their cats and are familiar with the influence of the twelve signs of the zodiac, but who wish to know more to better understand their own relationship with their favorite pet! In her latest book, Lesley Ann Ivory introduces us to the world of the feline zodiac. Ivory has written the accompanying text, explaining in straightforward language, astrological influences as they affect both humans and cats, using the specific cats featured in her paintings as examples. These cats include Ivory's own and those of her friends, each cat chosen for its astrological appropriateness and painted in a setting applicable to its sign. Images of suns, moons, stars, and elements decorate each painting, together with related attributes such as gemstones, animals, flowers, fruits, colors, herbs, and spices. These symbols are summarized in an illustrated 'key', along with information about the sources of artistic and historical inspiration behind each of the paintings. Ivory's devotion to her feline subjects, the rich coloring and extraordinary precision of the paintings and their multiplicity of astrological and other motifs make this her most original and visually spectacular book to date.
