LUCKY CAT

MIO YAMADA    Book Number: 88321    Product format: Hardback

It's waving paw has a cult fan base, but the Lucky Cat is more than just a cute ornament. The iconic creature is a symbol of good fortune and used as a powerful lucky charm in the shops and homes across Japan, China and beyond. The Lucky Cat or Maneki Neko in Japanese has a long history dating back to the 18th century, packed with fascinating folklore, serious symbolism, and countless contemporary cat spin-offs. Its paw, bib, coin, collar and colours all have meaning. Did you know a red cat will bring you luck in love, while a gold cat is all about wealth, or that a left-pawed cat is used by businesses to attract customers, while a cat with a beckoning white paw is found in homes as a talisman? There are teapots, money banks, cake moulds, clutch bags, phone cases and pen pots with this trippy novelty cat whether in green, white. Even the double-pawed version is explored in this book which is actually shaped like our paw-rocking icon of good fortune. Colourful pages, fully illus, sturdy board cover to the book.
