The sentiment above was present throughout Ted Geisel’s (aka Dr. Seuss) 60 years of paintings, drawings, and sculpture. To further this sense of fantasy and nonsense, Ted employed his hallmark technique of marrying text and imagery in his work.
Here, upon first glance, we see a young cat laying in a cradle. Upon a closer look, however, we see the cat engaged in one of the oldest games ever recorded in human history—Cat’s Cradle. Ted’s title then brings the two together and pushes the sense of whimsy to its extreme.
