According to cuteoverload.com, we have officially reached 'totally new levels of redonkulessness'. Sprung from the feverish imagination of Julie Jackson and her Siamese-cat partner in crime, the Kitty Wig craze has swept the globe, raising eyebrows at "CosmoGirl", the "LA Times", "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno, and Harper's "Bazaar Japan", where the wigs were featured in a (very) forward-thinking spring fashion spread. Here, 60 high-fashion portraits showcase cats posing in the most fetching custom-made cat wigs ever made. Not only chic, the felines in this delightfully odd book answer the age-old question: what on earth do cats do all day? Witness Tugboat vamping in a brazen blonde bob; Bacon lamenting in silky blue curls; and, Fern flirting in an aubergine mane. Clearly, these utterly fashionable minxes are the hottest pet trend since cats in hats.
Julie Jackson is the creator of Kitty Wigs and its companion web site (kittywigs.com), where she sells upscale hairpieces for special felines. Kitty Wigs has been featured in fashion layouts for Harper's Bazaar Japan and CosmoGirl; in Business Week; and on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CNN's Anderson Cooper 360degree, and BBC's Graham Norton. When not fussing with kitties, Julie is also the force behind Subversive Cross Stitch (subversivecrossstitch.com), a modern craft meme that pairs old-fashioned samplers with updated snarky sentiments. Along with the book Subversive Cross Stitch, her kits for crafters can be found online and in retail stores around the world. Julie has also written for Craft, Lab, and JPG magazines.
