I'm doing a cat project for Dr Johnson's House, Gough Square, and have been looking at some of the printer's devices in the library books for the illustrations (having spent my first few months in the House photographing each and every book for the online catalogue, I know the books and their devices pretty well). I do love a good printer's device - it's a strange meeting of print culture and art, although I suspect there's a further overlap with tapestry and embroidery design too. Here are some printer's devices adapted to include cats:
