National Geographic Cat Shotsby National Geographic
This captivating portrait gallery of cats, immortalized by some of the National Geographic Society’s finest photographers, displays the affinity between these globe-trotting men and women and Felis catus. Many of these photographs have never been seen before been published, though they long have been the secret delight of the cat-loving Society illustrations editors and archivists.
In 60 full-color and archival images, you will meet sophisticated, café-going cats, dusty cats belonging to the wandering tribes of nomads, cowboy cats unfazed by a twirling lasso, sleek Siamese acrobats, and street-smart Tokyo tomcats. You’ll also encounter Koko, the gorilla, and her beloved kitten, All Ball; the cat that accompanied polar explorer Robert Falcon Scott’s ill-fated 1910 Antarctic expedition; and many more—all captured in their glorious variety.
Complete with amusingly informative captions and brief biographies of each contributor, Cat Shots, is catnip for any feline fancier: beautiful, beguiling, and in the best tradition of the National Geographic Society.
