China’s shop cats are little emperors of their own retail kingdoms, keeping rodents at bay and enticing customers inside. And now they are also the stars of this delightful little book, the companion to Shop Cats of Hong Kong.
Marcel Heijnen’s compelling photographs take you from shop to shop across the provinces of China, where traditional retail and street life merge, rolling back the shutters on a little bit of Chinese culture and a whole lot of moggy charm. Meanwhile, Ian Row’s intuitive haiku and stories invite you into the cats’ innermost thoughts – sometimes catty, sometimes sweet, but always with a whisker or two of love.
