As you all of course know today is World Cat Day! Or perhaps I’m the only one who’s accidentally strayed across this fact… And in spite of being a little allergic to cats, I do think we should take the opportunity to celebrate our feline friends in this week’s Wednesday Cover Story. To begin, take a look at this blog entry I found via Google, where classic book covers have been adapted to include kitties. Particularly liking Catonement by Ian McEwan and The Catanic Verses by Salman Rushdie, although I do get the feeling that the blogger perhaps had a little too much time on their hands…
But of course here at Allison & Busby we too enjoy a cat-themed cover. Our Hazel Holt books in particular feature a mysterious black cat which continues to reappear throughout the series…spooky!
Does anyone else know of any notable kitty-themed covers (or perhaps you’d like to invent more feline versions of literary classics?)
