Tell Me, Cat

Tell Me, Cat by Ellen Fisher.  Stitchery by Virginia Tiffany.
A Whitman Giant Tell-A-Tale Book.
Whitman Publishing Company, 1965.

Oh, I'm excited to share this one with you today!  Remember the Whitman Giant Tell-A-Tale of Rumpelstiltskin I showed you?  The one with the amazing embroidered illustrations?  Well, I have another Whitman to show you.  Lots of stitchery, courtesy of the same Virginia Tiffany.  


But wait!  There's more!  It's all about cats!  And there are photographs of cats.  And the best part?

It's a book of poetry about cats.  So here I am, combining my love of embroidery, vintage children's books (particularly Whitmans!), kitties, and National Poetry Month into one giant post of awesome.  This book speaks for itself.  Enjoy.

Meow.

  1. Yay! You got it! Have this one and haven't looked at it for a really long time. Somehow, even the cats themselves look retro. Love it!

    1. Yes! And I'm loving it! It's such a giggle. The pictures remind me of old cat photography books my grandma in Oklahoma had. I used to sit on her lap and stare at all the kitties.

    1. I wish I knew more about Virginia Tiffany. I need to get a hold of her Child's Garden of Verses next.
