Doggie and Pussycat are really enjoying themselves on this thick cotton cover. The design is based on the classic Czech children’s book All About Doggie and Pussycat by painter and author Josef Čapek. The book cover is that of the edition originally published in the Czech Republic, so it features Doggie and Pussycat holding hands and the Czech book title and author name above and below them. The design is silkscreen printed onto the cover, so the printed area is sleek when you run your hands across it, and it has a vague three-dimensional effect.
The inner pocket is printed with an image of Doggie and Pussycat at home, getting ready to clean the floor.
The butterfly stopper pen holders are a bright yellow and blue to match the colors of Doggie and Pussycat. The cover’s red spine lists the name of the book, just like the original children’s book, and it has matching red bookmarks. There’s something delightful about feeling like you’re carrying around a Czech children’s book.
There’s a hidden illustration inside the cover’s inner pocket. This is from the design on the endpaper for the original Czech edition book.
Doggie and Pussycat want to live like humans, so they do human things like wash the floor, bake a cake, and write letters. They make lots of mistakes, but they’re very determined and funny, so you’ll be laughing at their antics.
With this cover, you can enjoy the year ahead of you just like Doggie and Pussycat, who don’t fit into a mold and come up with their own unconventional ideas with their free-thinking.
