Cat Says Meow: And Other Animalopoeia
by Michael Arndt
What it's all about . . .
Do you like animals? And eye-catching typography? Then Cat Says Meow is your book. The shapes of the letters (that make the animal sounds) curve and twist to become the animals. It’s original and well crafted and the more you read it the more layers you’ll uncover. For instance, many of the animals are arranged to be in conversation.
Why it’s on the Crooked Bookshelf . . .
It’s a clever concept that has winning results. Plus, the typography makes it different from other animal books out there.
