Tomorrow’s edition of the Sunday Times Magazine in the UK and Ireland will feature an interview with Kate’s brother, John. This is to coincide with the publication on November 20th of a new edition of his iconic book of photographs of Kate as a child, ‘Cathy’. The book can be pre-ordered as a limited signature edition here, or on Amazon here (it is also available from all major booksellers).
First published as a run of just 500 copies in 1986, Cathy is a collection of photographs by John of 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since the original edition – includes a new introduction by John Carder Bush, illustrated with eight previously unpublished photographs.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. (With thanks to Isabelle for posting the magazine ad)
