“As a long-time can opener and passionate cat lover, the work on this book has given me great pleasure, so that I hope you can clearly see this on every single page, in every sentence and in every illustration. Although I think I have a relatively large general education - there were a lot of new things to discover from the world of pedigree cats and cats in general, which gave me beside the great gain of knowledge also entertaining moments. I wish the readers a lot of fun and amusing time with the handbook.”

Review "Katzen-Echo"/German Edelkatze e.V.
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.

Review: Ortrun Wagner, Essen/Germany (15.12.2019)
Edit: In the current version (20.12.2019) all errors were corrected (publisher)
136 pedigree cats portrayed through descriptions of their breeding history enriched with anecdotes including background information on each individual cat - make this book an exciting and entertaining handbook. Attractive, black and white pen-and-ink drawings awaken the reader's creative vein and invite the reader to paint the pages artistically. Such a multifaceted reference work with double use thus serves to broaden the mental horizon as well as creative relaxation.
Actually it's quite anachronistic to publish printed coloring books in the age of e-books and apps - but we are enthusiastic supporters of easily affordable, telephone book-sized employment books: be it the opulent coloring book with its full-page, optional illustrations and rudimentary information or the PAPERS books - the somewhat more sophisticated and in-depth textbooks with lots of information. Both creative books are based on an amazingly simple, didactic basic concept:
-Increasing concentration and the ability to learn by linking what has been read and seen with physical exercise
-increasing the ability to concentrate through contemplative employment
-Effective relaxation through conscious renunciation of the otherwise ubiquitous information rush
So it is not surprising that we explicitly allow private readers and especially educational and charitable institutions to copy the catmotifs from the coloring book and use them for any non-commercial projects.For example, to paint them, cut them out and use them for handicrafts. To make collages, wallpapers, posters and gift wrap papers or to apply them as templates for great ironing motifs on T-shirts, bags etc. by thermal transfer printing. There are no limits to your imagination. And that's the real meaning of it: away from passive screen rigidity towards active do-it-yourself! With the positive side-effect you can also learn something that will stay in your memory for a longtime. We have anyhow large joy with working on all these interesting topics and hope that it goes to the readers likewise and you enjoy extensively it! :-)
