Description
 
By Yvonne Skargon. London: Primrose Hill Press, 1998. A book with engravings of a now famous cat by this internationally renowned British engraver and one of her best known books. Born under obscure circumstances in North London in 1973, Oscar adopted the artist courtesy of the RSPCA and began an association with books and literature worldwide. Oscar retired to Suffolk later in life where he demonstrated well Oscar Wilde’s perception that “In the country people get up early because they have so much to do and go to bed early because they have so little to think about.” Also available as a limited signed edition with original engravings printed from the block. Equally well know is her book depicting the lives of two succeeding cats, Lilly and Hodge, appearing in Lilly & Hodge & Dr. Johnson (also available). 198 x 129 mm, 56 pp. Paperback.
