“In the pantheon of famous internet cats, few stand as tall as Lil BUB.”
Jon Blistein, Rolling Stone
“This is BUB's Bowie moment.”
Michael La Torre, Alt Revue
"Ever since BUB landed on Earth back in the summer of 2011, she has brought immeasurable positivity, hope, and happiness to millions of people all over our planet. Since the moment I took the first photo of BUB's remarkable face, I've had the dream of making a deluxe coffee table photo book featuring her photographs. And as with all things BUB, everything came together serendipitously after she departed back into space and our longtime friend and collaborator Aaron Tanner (who was responsible for designing BUB's website, and most of her merchandise) began designing and manufacturing coffee table books for notable bands. To commemorate the unmistakable good she brought to us in her 8+ short years on Earth, Aaron and I have decided to collaborate on this beautiful book in honor of one of the Most Amazing Cat On the Planet: Lil BUB."
