While other early cat fanciers have faded from memory, the names of Louis Wain, Harrison Weir and Miss Frances Simpson remain well known as early writers, judges or exhibitors of cats. They were there at the start of the organized cat fancy. While the lives of Louis Wain and Harrison Weir are relatively well-known, that of Frances Simpson isn’t.
Simpson is best remembered for two things: the first advocate of ‘pure-bred’ Blue Persians, and the authoress of “The Book of the Cat”.
Our fine art prints are inspired by antique illustrations. We make them with superb pigmented inks and heavyweight German fine art paper made from 100% cotton and spring water.
