Books,Style Icons: Female »The Cat at Night, Dahlov Ipcar

catatnight350by Dahlov Ipcar (1969)

I always relish in discovering a beautiful children’s book and Dahlov Ipcar‘s The Cat at Night is exceptionally lovely.

Her colorful illustrations are truly inspiring as is her multi facited career. Im intregued with every new piece of information I read about the Maine native: She had a solo exhibit at the museum of modern art when she was just 21. Her other children’s books look as amazing as the cat at night and she’s even written some sci-fi/fantasy with intriguing titles like The Queen of Spells and The Warlock of Night.

Thanks Meghan for the gift of this book which has introduced me to such an interesting talent.

    I’m fortunate to collaborate with Mrs. Ipcar on a series of rugs and pillows based on her books. “The Cat in the Garden,” from “The Cat at Night,” was so popular that I had to reorder tons more of that pillow! Please go to to see the complete Dahlov Ipcar Collection.
