Literary Pets: Kurt Vonnemutt, Joyce Feral Oates, John Pupdike & Jane Pawsten

The names alone sell these illustrations of authors-as-pets: Kurt Vonnemutt, Joyce Feral Oates, John Pupdike, Jane Pawsten and F. Scott Fetchgerald. The illustrations are by Chet Phillips. The Mark Twain...er, "Bark" Twain...in particular, bears an uncanny resemblance to the author who is said to have said, "Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."
