“The Cat Who Wouldn’t Come Inside” will be featured in a 3-D display at the Museum of American Illustration.
Cynthia von Buhler’s children’s book, “The Cat Who Wouldn’t Come Inside,” tells the tale of a stray cat who visits a young girl at her Victorian house but won’t come inside. From now until Jan. 5, 2007, three-dimensional sets based on scenes in the book will be on display at the Museum of American Illustration in New York City as part of the museum’s juried Third Biennial Dimensional Salon group exhibition and catalog.

The museum and the Society of Illustrators have also selected several of von Buhler’s unique illustrations, which are photographs of carefully sculptured sets, to appear in the society’s annual exhibition from Mar. 4 to April 1, 2007. The work will also appear in the American Illustration 2006 book of the best illustrations in the country.

The Society of Illustrators promotes the art and appreciation of illustration, as well as its history and evolving nature. The Museum of American Illustration maintains a large collection of original illustrations. For more information on von Buhler’s book, “The Cat Who Wouldn’t Come Inside,” and to learn how she created her illustrations, visit her website.
