Famous for its beautiful waterways, Venice is also renowned for its slinky, stoic, adorable cats. Presenting 80 gorgeous color images, photographer Shin Otani offers a cat's-eye view of the city that has enchanted travelers for centuries. Peering through the morning mist, prowling along the Grand Canal, or basking in the golden Mediterranean sun, the cats of Venice embody all the mystery and grace of old Europe. Stone and terra-cotta plazas, languid canals, windows with brightly painted shutters, and spiraling wrought iron set the stage for the ramblings of these lucky cats. At once a portrait of Venice's famous felines and an homage to a magical place, The Cats of Venice will delight lovers of both the city of canals and its favorite four-legged citizens.

In the spirit of Hans Silvester's brilliant feline photo collections, including Cats in the Sun and Asleep in the Sun, Shin Otani's The Cats of Venice celebrates the charming Italian city and its bewhiskered inhabitants. Eighty full-color photographs capture the legendary waterways, gondolas, and glorious Renaissance architecture. Asleep in shop windows, lolling on park benches, and ambling along the cobbled streets are an assortment of content kitties, some strays, and some household pets. The featured felines are mainly good old-fashioned tabby cats, a sprinkling of black-and-whites, and grays. Otani skillfully portrays the mystery and romance of Venice as well as the enigmatic cats that wander its streets. --Naomi GesingerAbout the Author:
