This unique introduction to the story of art, by way of artworks in which mice appear, offers the curious art lover an unintimidating voyage around the world of art, from ancient Peru and Egypt to the present.

Mickey Mouse this is not: Lorna Owen's fascinating selection of art that features or refers to mice, based on her popular blog Mouse Interrupted, is an engagingly serious presentation of an extraordinary range of art. Having studied art history and studio art, and with a publishing background including a stint as editor for Nan A. Talese/Doubleday, Owen brings both a savvy sense of the appropriate level to engage her readers and a seasoned sense of what will sell. Approximately 75 art works are featured, the best of her blog, with fine color reproductions accompanied by concise texts-a mouse's eye view of art.
