The iconic collection of photographs of Kate Bush as a young girl, taken by her brother, the photographer and writer John Carder Bush.
First published as a run of just 500 copies in 1986, Cathy is a collection of photographs by John Carder Bush of his sister Kate as a young girl, with accompanying text. This new edition - the first printing since the original edition - includes a new introduction by John Carder Bush, illustrated with eight previously unpublished photographs.
A beautifully bound hardback with a linen cover, head and tail bands and a matching linen slipcase, Cathy is comprised of twenty-eight cut out pages featuring the text, with full-page photographs revealed on a separate page beneath. The design matches the original limited run in layout, including the original introduction as well.
Before the Dawn was a magical mix of wild imagination, playful theatricality and intimate, homespun pleasures and the same elements are all evident in Cathy . . . beautifully presented, with a detail of each image first glimpsed through a window in the preceding page. - Telegraph
