Summary

The art of the Ukiyo-e reflected the artistic expression of an isolated civilisation which, when it became accessible to the West, significantly influenced a number of European artists. The three masters of Ukiyo-e, Hokusai, Utamaro and Hiroshige, are united here for the first time to create a true reference on Japanese art. The three masters rank highly among the most famous Japanese artistic productions of all time. This new title of the Prestige of Art collection will be a reference for art students and Japanese art lovers.

    Relive the romantic story of the engagement and marriage of one of America’s most endearing comic-strip heroines in this collection. 
     
    “The comic-strip character Cathy, one of America’s most famous single career women, finally got married to her hapless longtime boyfriend, Irving—and on Valentine’s Day, no less. It’s the end of an era-or was it?” —USA Today 
     
    “YES.” Rarely has one word, one positive response, resonated so loudly from the world's comic pages. But when leading lady Cathy finally took the plunge—after nearly 30 interminable years!—and accepted boyfriend Irving's marriage proposal, the occasion certainly deserved notice among Cathy fans around the globe. 
     
    The Wedding of Cathy and Irving captures all the fun, magic, and—yes—the nerve-racking overanalyzing that filled the Cathy strips leading up to the big decision and the big day itself. This collection features some of the couple's most memorable moments from throughout their long relationship, but the spotlight shines most on the year that included the unexpected “ring find,” the proposal, the “YES,” and the frenetic wedding plans that Cathy and Mom both endure and perpetuate. 
     
    The longest courtship in cartoon page history came to an end on February 5, 2005. But as The Wedding of Cathy and Irving shows, nothing is quite that simple in Cathy’s world. Whether she’s pondering pastor possibilities or worrying wedding dress selections to death, Cathy is unequalled in capturing the conundrums of modern women everywhere. It’s all Cathy, through and through.
