Internationally renowned folk artist Laurel Burch shares the story of her development into accomplished self-taught painter and supremely successful designer. Her vibrant signature cats--now found on everything from coffee mugs to earrings to tote bags to stationery to T-shirts to framed prints--manage to retain their vivid charm even in the face of mass marketing. Though intended primarily as a guide for Laurel Burch collectors and cat fanciers, the book's large, brilliantly colored photos and the (somewhat disjointed) tale of her ultimate artistic success against many odds should prove inspiring to crafters as well.


--San Jose Mercury News, July 1997
Sonoma artist Laurel Burch celebrates her cats of every stripe, dot, squiggle and color imaginable with the publication of "Fantastic Felines." Even those familiar with Burch's love of cats may be surprised at the variety here and how cats progress from Burch's imagination to pencil sketches, then move to colorful pieces of original art and then onto coffee mugs, earrings, necklaces, pins, plates, wooden figures, masks, umbrellas, sweat shirts, tote bags and note cards.

Interspersed among her colorful art in this book are Burch's insightful comments on her life, art, dreams and inspirations. The book serves as an introduction to the wonderful world of Laurel Burch and her extensive family that includes Rainbow Cats, Zebracat, Fantastic Felines, Egypticats and more.
