The Supernatural Cats of Japan
by Zack Davisson
No current Talk conversations about this book.
This was a completely random read for me. I have no deep interest in the topic and the driving force in reading this was mainly mild curiosity. This was a good book for what it was, but I didn't feel any real passion or deep interest for it. So, I'm not going to rate this, because my lack of enjoyment was mainly my own fault. I recommend this to anyone who's interested in Japanese cat lore or folklore in general. ( )
An in-depth exploration of the sometimes charming, sometimes gruesome feline creatures and ghosts of Japan. Davisson illuminates the vast realm of kaibyō, or supernatural cats, with historical and modern cultural context. Lushly illustrated in full color with dozens of ukiyo-e prints and drawings. A must-have book for the Japanophile and cat-lover alike! This second edition includes a gatefold reproduction of Takashi Murakami's 10-meter "Japan Supernatural" painting featuring asupernatural cat and an updated introduction from Davisson.
