“When a man loves cats, I am his friend and comrade, without further introduction.” —Mark Twain
From Isaac Newton to Freddie Mercury, iconic men throughout history have adored cats. So illustrator Sam Kalda decided to celebrate 30 of these men and their feline companions in his new book, Of Cats and Men. Featuring historic profiles and beautiful illustrations, the book charmingly argues that cats are “man’s true best friend.”
Check out the gallery to view some of Kalda’s art paired with excerpts about cat-loving writers.
