An artist and a theater devotee (having worked the box office of Stratford's Royal Shakespeare Theatre, among others), Susan Herbert became a pioneer in the world of cat art in the 1970s when the elegant posters she painted for the foyer began starring felines. After published collections like Opera Cats, Pre-Raphaelite Cats, and Cats Galore, we return to Herbert's theatrical roots here with a bound folio of posters based on her 1996 book Shakespeare Cats. A tabby Petruchio hoists Kate over his shoulder, in one of these frameable prints (11 ? 14 inches), while a ginger Juliet smooches Romeo on the balcony, and a Siamese Cleopatra entrances us all.
