The Times Book of Church Cats

The Times Book of Church Cats

by RichardSurman (Author)


Following the success of CATHEDRAL CATS, Richard Surman's new book, CHURCH CATS, promises to be even more appealing with the beautiful cat portraits it captures. Richard Surman has toured the ecclesiastical sites of Britain photographing cats in abbeys, priories, churches and minsters. For this book he has focused on the larger, close -up portraits of cats which people seem to love, making it a sumptuous coffee table book, with plenty of lovable characters. Each of the 20 chapters begins with a line drawing of the church, followed by 2 or 3 photographs of the cats that live there. Richard Surman tells their stories with sensitive and often humorous commentary. CATHEDRAL CATS has sold 25,000 copies since 1993 (6,000 of these in the recent paperback). COLLEGE CATS and CASTLE CATS did slightly less well, and our sales reports indicate that the Church market makes all the difference to the success of these books.
