Nanette Wylde – Hello Catty – NO LONGER AVAILABLE

© 2011, editiom of 28, 9 x 9 closed


Hello Catty! is a light-hearted, yet poignant play on catty behaviors couched by a feline perspective. Designed as a movable board book, it consists of five two-page spreads. Each spread contains user interactive elements: wheels, pop-ups, pulls, spinners, windows, flaps, a game and ephemera.

It came about after Karen and Nanette shared an experience of a person being unnecessarily mean to them. This was followed by conversations on meanness: types, reasons, stereotypes . . . and has resulted in this book.

Karen Chew is an artist, cook, and green building design professional. Nanette Wylde is a cultural worker making socially reflective, language-based works, generally in hybrid media. Chew and Wylde live in Redwood City, California where they get together on occasion to drink tea and talk about cats.
