I’ve been clearing out my old emails and came across a great post from Habitually Chic that I just had to share with you. It was about a book called Animal House by Catherine Ledner.


It’s a magical fantasy book that mixes vintage and discontinued wallpapers from the 1930’s and 40’s with the most strange and beautiful animals.

The author Catherine Ledner is a well know portraitist and commercial photographer. The New York Times said “she became fascinated by the idea of using wallpaper patterns in animal portraiture, and her book, “Animal House,” is the result”.


All the animals came with their trainers. Apparently the deer came to the studio twice. Once to check it out and and then again for the shoot.


Every single shot is beautiful and so well composed.


I wouldn’t say the vulture is in my top favourite list of animals but this image is fantastic.

Animal House is going on my wish list for sure.
