This brilliant spoof is beautifully photographed (and photoshopped). The text is just enough over the top to make it clear they're making it up, but it's so well done that a good many people have mistaken it for truth. It's a send-up of both cat books and art books, whimsical and funny and a great conversation-starter as a coffee-table book.

I love books where you are never quite sure whether the author is taking himself/herself seriously or not. Since the authors are from New Zealand, maybe the Corialis Force going the other way brings out a cat's creativity?

I love this book and the artist cats in it. So much in fact -that I,m keeping my copy a little longer to see if I can teach my cats to paint.
