The Artist Who Loved Cats

The Inspiring Tale of Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen

2019 INDIES Winner
Bronze, Picture Books, Early Reader (Children's)

Stroll along Rue Montcalm or enter a Parisian cabaret through this charming biography of Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen that celebrates the excitement of France in the late 1800s. The artist was known for his post-war lithographs and penchant for depicting felines, and replicas of his iconic posters in shades of gold, black, and vermilion are complemented by rhyming verses full of mercis, mais ouis, messieurs, and mademoiselles. The music, art, and culture of the times shines around every corner.
