Jeffrey Brown has cat scratch fever and he illustrates the elementary things around us and brings his lines to life. It’s amazing how the obvious eludes us and Jeffery Brown captures it with his orb like a camera.
Celebrated comic artist and graphic novelist Jeffrey Brown’s collection of all-new drawings sweetly illustrates the joys of living with a cat. Featured in McSweeney’s and on NPR’s This American Life, and praised by comic luminaries Chris Ware and Daniel Clowes, Brown’s work has always paid tribute to felines as they curl up on couches and purr on the peripheries of his autobiographical stories.

In a series of drawings, Brown perfectly captures the universal charm of cats in a lovely book sure to please fans and cat lovers of any stripe.
