Obi a little torn.

An ample Japanese photobook focusing on street cats and kittens. The care and attention given to the subject is remarkably touching and this is one in a series of four beautifully sequenced publications. The title 'Neko manma' refers to cat food in Japan, where leftover rice would typically be given to cats.
