Cait’s Catalogues Raisonnés

What on earth is a catalogue raisonné you ask? (And very reasonably so.)

A catalogue raisonné is a systematic, annotated catalog. Put another way, it’s a critical bibliography.

Or, put most simply, it’s my guide to little reading projects on a topic. 

A little fiction, a little non-fiction. Some mixing and matching. And a solid grounding in whatever topic you are interested in…
