Cat Queen

Animals From History is a playful series that ties together history lessons with incredibly detailed animal illustrations. Created by Christina Hess, each full color print features a famous character portrayed by a well-dressed cat or a dog. Hess pairs her illustrations with the elaborate life stories of cleverly named characters like Elvis Petme, Cleocatra, and Joan of Bark.

The ornate portraits are filled with adventurous scenes, elegant garb, and intricate details that look almost lifelike, and viewers will be intrigued by the furry friends and foes of our past. Luckily, we can discover more by reading the accompanying fictional tales, which combine real events and the artist's imagination to charm both children and adults. "This collection is a fun way for people to become introduced and reintroduced to history while allowing a twist of imagination to guide their interest forward," explains Hess.
