Stuff on My Cat: The Book
Mario GarzaIt began with a handful of digital photographs of office supplies, toys, and spare computer parts thoughtfully placed on Mario Garza's snoozing cat, Love. Over time, the objects became bigger: remote controls, shoes, empty pizza boxes. And then cat owners everywhere were sucked into the Internet phenomenon that is defined by a simple motto: stuff + cats = awesome. From Stuffonmycat.com (the amazingly popular website that redefines hilarious and that was named one of the coolest sites of the year by Yahoo! And GQ magazine) comes Stuff On My Cat: The Book. Culled from the thousands of outrageous photographs submitted by mischievous animal lovers, here are 200 of the most unbelievably entertaining images of cats with all manner of things on them: wigs, Easter eggs, dogs, cheeseburgers, cookware, gummi bears, action figures, tiaras, beer cans, pinecones, a statue of the Buddha, and much more. An introduction by the site's creator explains the Stuff on My Cat philosophy, and playful illustrations and graphics are sprinkled throughout. Just try to keep a straight face.

Character Trademarks
John MendenhallWith the growing awareness of the value of character trademark symbols in product design, marketing, and promotion has come a resurgence of interest in these extraordinary icons. The popularity of the California Raisins and other recent examples attest to the appeal of character trademarks in popular culture. From Reddy Kilowatt to Colonel Sanders, there is humor and nostalgia in the humble, often "kitschy" images which have become classics of commercial folk art that every consumer can relate to. This engaging volume contains approximately one thousand trademarks from the past ninety years, as well as a "Hall of Fame" section profiling some of the classic characters with the history of their development. Chronicle Books is pleased to include this remarkable volume in its series of design books, including Trademarks of the 20's and 30's and Trademarks of the 40's and 50's.
