Richard Surman has toured the ecclesiastical sites of Britain photographing cats in abbeys, priories, churches and minsters. For this book he focused on the larger, close-up portraits of cats which people seem to love, making it a charming collection, 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.
