“Here’s looking at you kid” Atelier Kaymak presents all the wild cats of the world: 46 species in individual portraits. An illustrated journey through the evolution of the big cats. With 139 pen and ink drawings. Most of the cats presented here certainly don’t let you say that twice: predatory cats are curious … and unfortunately also mostly hungry. Therefore, they’d make short work of most of us. Humphrey Bogart’s line and the movie CASABLANCA are surely only known by the older ones among us. Nevertheless: the phrase shaped whole generations. Therefore, you will still hear this macho remark here and there today (if anyone still dares). Bogart is the patron of this book. Also because his colleague and wife at the time – the wonderfully pretty Lauren Bacall (the one with the cat’s eyes) – could easily join the book here. SpeedDating Animals is, so to speak, the pizza version of nonfiction. Here you take away tons of knowledge in a pleasant way – without being bludgeoned by lots of info right away! The book – and the whole series – has the intention to convey complex topics in a pleasant way. The beginning is set by the cats, my personal favorite animals.
