Softcover Monmon Cats Vol II book that features new artwork from Horitomo!
Share the love
Passed through my stories on IG from another friend and I bought it as a gift for an artist / animator, IT IS A TOP FAVE! Recommended!
Love this book, full of incredible art and thorough explanation of the imagery, the elements, and the lore. The perfect accompaniment for my new Monmon Cat tattoo (thank you again Horitomo!). I bought a second copy and gifted it to a fellow art/tattoo enthusiast that I work with.
I think the most important thing to mention is the size of the book, it is roughly 8 x 10 inches in size (when closed) so nice big pictures to look at. I never knew what size the book was so I hesitated before ordering it. Then another lady posted a picture of her in a Mon Mon Cats T with this book in her hands, and I bought it. Size matters in a picture book.
The book discusses the meaning behind the imagery in traditional Japanese tattoo, illustrated with the marvelous Mon Mon cats. I sat down and read the whole thing cover to cover immediately. Very enjoyable. Quite please with my purchase.
Shipped fast, arrived in perfect condition. Love the book, full of art inspiration and history
As with the first book it is interesting to read and every page is beautiful and inspiring. Thank you!
Got more than I was expecting with this book. Great insight on traditional iconography and gives me a greater appreciation for the work!
I have never read such a cool book about cats!! All the cats on this book have their own tatooes and they are excellent. I love the cats and their Monmons.
Beautiful book for any tattoo artist/ enthusiast /cat lover! I couldn’t be happier with it
This book is magnificent. I love the drawings and the texts which explains the Japanese mythology and the different techniques of modern or traditional Japanese tattoos. Indispensable when you love tattoos and Japanese culture.
An amazing book with amazing art! The art and explanations are all really well done and will be helping me plan my Japanese sleeve. My only regret is I didn’t wait another week for the collectors addition. Go get this book!
Great book, quick service.
This is an awesome book!! Great info about the history of Japanese Tattoo and the current efforts to keep it alive!
It’s a gift so I didn’t unwrap it. I am so excited to give this to my son! I’ll take a picture then I did visit the website and just LOVE everything.
A perfect gift for my friend that is starting to tattoo!
really love it! it was worth waiting for it.
I absolutely love this book. Not only are Horitomo's beautiful works in there, but he also provides great cultural context and explanations for alot of his works. Very insightful and I'm glad I got the book.
Very nice book! I love the presentation and the quality of the drawings themselves. Very clean, very Japanese, I'm extremely satisfied and that inspires me to have another tattoo!
Amazing book! Beautiful artwork....I enjoyed reading about the masters and insight on the art and history behind it....thank you for putting this together
Book is filled with humor, cleverness, lots of cats, cute butterflies and mice. Helpful background information on classical Japanese full body tattoos...description of tattoo hand tools, technique and layouts of classical Japanese patterns on the body. Good information about common Japanese tattoo themes even a few pages on the lucky treasures TAKARAZUKUSHI. A real gem of a book! Wonderful artwork Horitomo!! Thank you.
Artwork is so colorful and playful. I love all the explanations and comments included. It gives more to his reasons and thought process. More importantly, I love how he pays homage to his influences to his work.
this amazing ahira comes with a little more text and meanings.
Horitomo's Monmon Cats Vol. 2 is another amazing book of great artwork!
