9780975366431: Dr. Seuss: The Cat Behind the Hat: The Collector’s Edition

This exquisitely produced collector’s edition holds four exclusive lithographs along with a cloth-covered edition of The Cat Behind the Hat, a beautifully illustrated book that redefines Dr. Seuss as an iconic American artist. Illustrator by day, surrealist by night, Dr. Seuss created a body of little-known work that he called his “Midnight Paintings.” For sixty years, this work allowed Geisel to expand his artistic boundaries outside the confines of commercial influences and deadlines. The book exuberantly juxtaposes Geisel’s “Midnight Paintings” with his best -loved children’s books. Though he fiercely protected his “Midnight Paintings” from criticism during his lifetime, his intention all along was for these works to be seen when he was gone. This comprehensive look at the art that he created over his lifetime, along with four frame-able prints, is an eye-opening peek behind the public persona into the real story of the man who was Dr. Seuss.

About the Author:

Caroline M. Smith has spent the last decade at Chase Art Companies as their researcher, essayist, and editor, working on projects for the various artists who are represented by the company. (Chase has represented The Art of Dr. Seuss since 1997.) Over time, it was evident to Robert Chase Jr. (publisher of The Cat Behind the Hat) that her passion and eloquence for Ted Geisel destined her to write this important volume on Dr. Seuss. Two years later, at the book’s completion, Caroline wrote these words to Audrey Geisel, “I want you to know what a privilege it was for me to author the new book about Ted. The entire time I worked on the project I felt a profound responsibility to treat the legacy of your elegant husband with incredible care. I was determined to do my absolute best for him and for you. I found my first real job in 1964 when I was 16—it put me through college and I have worked continuously ever since. This book, Ted’s book, was the most rewarding work of my life.”
