25 Cats Name Sam and One Blue Pussy and Holy Cats by Andy Warhol's Mother

by Andy Warhol. Panache Press at Random House, 2 vols. slipcased, $30.00. Before he startled the art world with soup cans, Andy Warhol worked as a commercial artist and amused himself by creating small, privately printed whimsies for his friends. Two of these books have now been reproduced in facsimile. The line drawings are delightfully fluid and expressive, the colors are wildly arbitrary, nothing is realistic, but the character of cats—wily, timid, playful, arrogant, smug—is all there for any cat-lover to recognize.
