The Yawning Cat debuted in 1967, stretching across two pages of Dr. Seuss’s Cat in the Hat Songbook. In this ambitious project, the Cat and an additional host of characters illustrate a collection of songs written by Ted Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) that were eventually recorded into an album. The artwork generated for this project, from Ted’s early concept drawings to his final pen and inks, are some of the most engaging of his entire catalog.
