5.0 out of 5 stars A Heartwarming Portrayal of the Cat in Kuniyoshi's Woodblock Prints, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cats in Ukiyo-E: Japanese Woodblock Prints (Tankobon Softcover)
The full title of this book is 'Cats in Ukiyo-e: Japanese Woodblock Print of Utagawa Kuniyoshi' and features the various depictions of cats that Kuniyoshi created for some of his woodblock prints.

Knowing very little about Kuniyoshi, this book was both a charming and endearing look at the way Kuniyoshi's own love of cats inspired the often tender portrayals of our feline friends in his works. My favourite chapter was the depiction of cats in everyday circumstances - His prints of women and their cats include more than few circumstances which would be familiar to modern cat owners! Kuniyoshi captures their curious and often mysterious nature. The information provided is in Japanese and English and clearly explains the importance of the prints and the relevance of the depictions.

The book came sealed with a piece of cotton material decorated with cat prints from the book which made my purchase even better! The book is printed on quality paper. It has a charming cover and an in-built bookmark shaped like a cat. This book was well worth the price and I would recommend it to everyone who loves cats. A thoughtful and intriguing little book.
