Queer Icons and Their Cats is exactly what it says on the tin. It is a lovely coffee table book that features pictures and mini bios of Queer Icons like Freddie Mercury, Elton John, and Alison Bechdel with their cats.
With a small introduction, the book is laid out in a logical manner – organized by first name since several entries feature icons that only have one name. It’s a light fluffy book that doesn’t try to be more that what it is. It’s the kind of book you leave open on your coffee table when company comes over. The kind of book you’d give your cat-loving relative as a gift.
The images range from stunning set pieces like the image pictured on the cover. To intimate snapshots that seemed to catch the icon in a moment of time. Some are selfies, others candids. It’s a good mix of cats and cat lovers.
It’s cute. It’s light. It’s got pictures of cats.
I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley.
