I love this book! Cathy is so funny.
From the cover:
Since her debut in 1976, Cathy has chronicled the trends of America and kept track of our national funnybone, serving as a sensitive social barometer. Reflections celebrates her fifteenth anniversary with full-color Sundays and highlights form the strip's early years through the newest cartoons.
Reflections is a journey through fifteen years of American culture, pout in proper perspective with Cathy's signature wit and honesty. Remember the first onslaught of video games...digital watches that performed a hundred tasks without telling time...the Individual Retirement Account rage that promised to make everyone millionaires by the time they were 70...the introduction of Velcro...answering machines...health food...cable TV...boil-in-bag meals...microwaves...call waiting...tanning booths...overnight delivery? The fads and trends of American culture are documented in Reflections, providing a timeline of the things and thoughts that shape life as we know it.
Created by Cathy Guisewite, the cartoon Cathy continues to entertain millions of readers daily as she shares her personal and professional struggles highlighted by her on-again, off-again romance with Irving, the hysterical give and take with her overprotective and obsessive mother, and, of course, her battle against the bulge. Cathy has become a licensing phenomenon with over 200 products ranging from sleepwear to coffee mugs to greeting cards. Cathy consistently ranks at the top of newspaper polls as a favorite among readers.
This collectible book features notes and a sentence or two of commentary from the author at various places, enriching our appreciation of the strip.
