Marketplace: Three Favorite Gift Books for $25.00

Cat Book Trio

Stuck inside? Enjoy some artwork! I’m offering my three art books as a package for a special discounted price so you can look at 36 samples of my art from fine art to loose brush pen sketch, color up your own pages in a pocket-size coloring book, and enjoy fine art portraits and cat rescue stories along with information on cat health and welfare, all with this package of books.

Great Rescues Day Book, Feline Style Sampler and The Creative Cat Coloring Book are fun for your own use, and they are also great small gifts as thank yous, thinking of yous and all occasion gifts for cat lovers, for people studying art, for children to color and make notes.

The regular price for all three is $40.00. You can purchase the trio for only $25.00, which includes shipping and handling (US only, please ask for a quote for international shipping).

Great Rescues Day Book is spiral-bound and measures 8″ x 10″ to easily fit on your desk or in a purse, briefcase or backpack. It includes a featured commissioned portrait of a rescued cat or cats each month along with the rescue story. Each month has a line for the date, but no year, so you can add things as dates and anniversaries come into your life in perpetuity. It also includes a section of resources for cat care, and several pages of note paper for your notes or to write letters. Read more here.

The award-winning Feline Style Sampler is a collection of 36 images, no text or narrative, though each image has the name and medium of the image inconspicuously added at the bottom of the page. The book is little, only 4.25″ x 5.5″, and coil bound. All pages are printed on 100# gloss cover rather than text weight stock to stand up to handling and to ensure opacity. Read more here.

The Creative Cat Coloring Book is a 4.25” x 5.5” spiral-bound booklet of 13 daily sketches in brush pen printed on 120# card stock. I wanted to use something unique to my style and chose the black outlines with brush pen or brush marker. It’s small and you can do as much or as little work as you want, take a few minutes for a creative outlet, or hours with your design. Read more here.


Great Rescues Portrait Collection

Although Great Rescues Day Book is a 12-month book I am still featuring all 15 portraits of rescued cats that were included in the original Great Rescues Calendar, plus the portrait of my own Fawn which I consider my first portrait, ever. These portraits as a collection won a Certificate of Excellence and a Muse Medallion in the 2011 Cat Writers’ Association Annual Communication Contest.


22 Cats Note Paper

I’ve always loved overall patterns of different cats on wrapping paper and fabric, and when I looked over the portraits I’d included I immediately saw the potential to create my own overall pattern with a feline theme which I named “22 Cats” for the number of different cats included in the design.

In the back of the book is 20 sheets of lined notepaper with “22 Cats” printed on both sides in black and white for you to use for your own notes or to send notes to others. The 22 Cats Notepaperwon both a Certificate of Excellence and a Muse Medallion in the 2011 Cat Writers’ Association Annual Communication Contest.
