From the greatest magazine in the world, The Big New Yorker Books of Cats is an irresistible anthology of long-form essays, short humour pieces, poems, fiction, and cartoons, with contributions from John Updike, Ted Hughes , Roald Dahl and many more.
To mark publication we have let cats run loose on the website with Windmill staffers photographing their cats with some favourite books and a Sense of Place feature from Mr Jim Jam. We hope you enjoy the cats takeover and if you’ve got a snap of your feline friend with a book (or indeed without) by all means share it with us on Twitter.
Would you like to win a copy of The Big New Yorker Book of Cats?Simply browse our photo blog and tweet the name of your favourite windmill cat using #BigNYCats and we’ll pick a winner at the end of the day.
The Big New Yorker Book of Cats is out now, published by William Heinemann.
Books Are My Bag is a nationwide campaign to celebrate bookshops.
Research shows that 56% of all book buying decisions are made by readers in shops, and that high street booksellers (chain and independent) account for almost 40% of books bought. Yet many shops are under threat, with a third having closed over the past 10 years (that’s one a week!)
Books Are My Bag is aiming to halt this process.
Books Are My Bag is aiming to halt this process by celebrating our shared love of books and bookshops, calling on you to show your support by purchasing a book from your local shop this Saturday September 14th. And getting one of these wonderful tote bags in the process…
There will be a host of events and activities to get involved with on Saturday, full details of which can be found here, and a Make Your Mark competition where you can win £100 worth of National Book Tokens and a copy of M&C Saatchi’s Brutal Simplicity of Thought. Click here for full details on how to enter.
The Books Are My Bag campaign was inspired by the precepts of Lord Maurice Saatchi’s Brutal Simplicity of Thought
