Chris Anthony book on Kickstarter

Project: poetic photographs done the old-fashioned way using wet plate collodion and tintype processes by Chris Anthony to be published in a book.
There is an Oct 17, 2012 deadline to support this project, Seas Without a Shore book (90 photographs) on Kickstarter.
I have another book by Chris (and a print) and his work is wonderfully imaginative and darkly elegant.

Actor James Mason's Cat Drawings

Lou told me recently that he took a boat with his mom to Capri, Italy when he was young. The amazing actor James Mason of Lolita fame happened to be on the boat as well. How cool! Unfortunately, Lou got seasick and was throwing up most of the trip. Anyway, Lou's story prompted me to look up James Mason on wikipedia.
I found out that James Mason was a cat-lover and wrote a book with his wife Pamela in 1949 called The Cats In Our Lives. The wonderful thing is that he illustrated the book as well. His ink drawings are superb and perfectly capture the personalities of his pet cats in a few strokes. More illustrations can be found on Silents and Talkies blog.
