‘Christopher Cricket on Cats’ is a wonderful text, penned by Anthony Henderson Euwer (1877 – 1955). As the title suggests, it is a book of wisdom for both young and old. Euwer was an American Author, and feline fanatic, who dedicated this children’s story: To all the Cats that ever Meowed On this or any Sphere,– From the beginning of all Time Unto this Present Year. This charming verse is beautifully illustrated throughout with Euwer’s graphic black-and-white illustrations. Aside from his work illustrating children’s books, Euwer was also a talented oil painter. His artistic flair is evident in the good humour and painstaking application, on show throughout this book. Presented alongside the text of ‘Christopher Cricket on Cats’, the drawings further enhance and refine Euwer’s masterful storytelling. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s classics and fairy tales – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.
