The book “Famous Faces” by takkoda, teNeues Publishing Company 2011, is an encyclopedic effort like Madame Tussaud’s project. But it is a satyric project: All celebrities are featured as animals: The authors, “Takkoda” (Sioux word = anonymous for two pet loving British couples) – they used digital tools, no living animal was harmed for this pet parodies.

By the way: “The well-known individuals have not had any involvement in the creation of the images and they have not approved them …”
