The Anthropomorphic Costume Designs of John Napier for Cats and Starlight Express.

Since a few people asked, I'm putting up my dissertation here, now it's all handed in and run through the plagarism database etc... Don't try to pass this off as your own writing, you'll get caught! Some of the photos are random and I don't claim ownership... I think, I HOPE, that this is quite an easy read, I didn't go into much depth on the academic theory. But hopefully if you're interested in Cats and/or Starlight Express and their costumes, my opinions here might be of interest!
