In Life and Love of Cats, Lewis Blackwell provides a unique perspective on one of our closest companions. Starting with the earliest records of domestic cats 9,000 years ago in Africa and the Mediterranean, Blackwell celebrates and explores the joy of cats in our lives, searching for the essence of our connection with them. Supporting the text is his presentation of a unique range of images shot by leading animal photographers from around the world.Through stunning photographs we are taken on a feline journey: from the homes of middle-America, to the alleys and lanes of France, to the plains of Africa; from rare hybrid domestic cross-breeds like the Savannah, to the exquisite specimens on show at the glittering Supreme Cat Show, to shelter cats lovingly rescued by volunteers; from graceful and haughty pure-breeds such as the Persian and the Abyssinian, to adored domestic companions of all shapes, colours and sizes. Blackwell weaves stories around these photographs, tales that track the close relationship between cats and humankind.
