For collectors of "advertiques," there are certain seminal characters, most of which have appeared in print ads, on television, and in three dimensional form. Among the favorites are the Jolly Green Giant, Charlie the Tuna, Tony the Tiger, the Pillsbury Doughboy, the Energizer Bunny, Mr. Clean, Reddy Killowatt - and Speedy Alka Seltzer. Speedy is a spunky redheaded boy with a dazzling white grin and almost Howdy Doody-like ears. His body is a round Alka ... [full story]

Some recent books of particular interest: "The Cat in Art" by Stefano Zuffi (Abrams, $35). From the title, you might expect this to be some kitschy kitten book. Au contraire. It's a charming but substantive treatment of the subject, ranging from ancient Egyptian bronzes to a Tom Wesselman pop painting, and Francis Bacon, David Hockney and Lucian Freud portraits. Arranged in roughly chronological order, it contains chapters on Antiquity-Egyptian goddesses to the mosaics of Pompeii; ... [full story]

Q: When the cicadas arrived in June, the two sugar maples in my front yard were inundated with them. Once they were gone, small branches with a few leaves on them began falling.
