What's New

Catland Version 2.0

  • New Website Theme - We worked hard to make the Catland experience the best it could possibly be. With our new website design, all of the annoyances of using the old site should be gone. The new design itself also brings a bunch of new features, such as:
    • Help page - Check our new help page, for advice and ideas on how to make the most out of our search system
    • New Homepage - Featuring redesigned counters and logo, the new homepage also brings you hand-picked examples of Wain's best work.
    • Refine Tags - After making a search, you can now easily add (+) or exclude (-) tags using our widget in the sidebar on the left to refine your search and find exactly what you're looking for.
    • About The Site - A small section about the administrators of the site and how to contact us with any questions or concerns.
  • Library - A collection of Louis Wains published works, everything that is available online can be found here.
    • Read books online in our fully-featured reader powered by Mozilla's PDF.js or download the PDF to read in the software of your choice
    • A never-before-seen book, The Adventures of Friskers and his Friends. This book has never been published online in any form, but here in Catland we have restored and digitised a copy into digital format for the viewers of the site to enjoy. Look forward to more exclusive books from our personal collection in the future.
    • Another book, The Cat Scouts. has also been scanned by us and added to the library, with the help of the Toronto Public Library.
  • Louis Wain Trivia - Look on the sidebar for our very own Wain Trivia, with one of over 80 facts shown every time. We have compiled facts and stories from various historical resources to provide a fun and insightful look into Wain's life. To hide this feature, click the "Louis Wain Trivia!" text.
  • Biography - We have also written a short biography that will provide newer users an insight into the artwork they see. If you don't know much about him, or even want to learn a little more, we highly suggest giving it a read.
  • Images Retagged for more accurate searching and discovery.
  • Bug Fixes
As always, we're continuing to work on the website, and are working on much more exciting artwork, books, features to share with everyone in our next update.
