All Cat Breeds of This World: All Approved Cat Breeds
„Katzen-Echo“/Deutsche Edelkatze e.V.
(„Cat Echo“/German Noble Cat Registered Society)
This is something completely new! Big as a telephone book, impressive graphic design in black and white, surprisingly unusual in appearance and content.
The 300-page volume from Atelier Kaymak looks a bit bulky at first glance, but is extremely pleasant to consume, full of pictures and short texts, informative and entertaining at the same time.
After a clear introduction into the cat being, the listing of 15 world-wide important cat breed organizations, overview and explanation to the numerous pictograms, which provide distributed over the whole book for fast info, Kaymak presents 136 cat races in alphabetical order in each case double-sided in the Kurzportrait. He characterizes each breed with a beautiful large-format pen drawing, in addition he gives interesting anecdotally spiced background information to breeding history and special characteristics of the breed. There are some inconsistencies, which are probably due to the lack of clarity and dynamic development of the intercontinental cat clubs by no means equal, by Kaymak, who is apparently always somehow the rogue in the neck, with a specially built in joke surpassed. That’s what makes you happy!
The author describes himself as a passionate cat fan, and you can see this in his work, which comes completely out of his hand, page by page. The successful unity of artistic design and didactic approach is what makes this book so special, which also impresses with an extraordinarily customer-friendly price.
All illustrations, with the exception of protected logos and trademarks, are free for private and non-commercial use, especially in educational institutions, old people’s homes, children’s homes and clinics.
Nuesret Kaymak works as an illustrator, concept and comic artist, cartoonist and animator for advertising, PR, film and television. Since 2012 he has been writing and illustrating didactic and humorous books on history, politics, art and culture, vegetarianism and animal welfare. You can find him on Linkedin, Xing, Google and other social media sites.
The new book of the cat and philanthropist is suitable for viewing and reading, as a template for handicrafts and painting, for learning and pleasure in all ages and life situations.
