What books?

Mostly I produce things that I'm interested in, which means that often they're things which other people aren't interested in! However, I'm not in it for the money, but to create publications about, and of, things that might otherwise be lost, or for whom there is a small and dedicated readership, but not enough people to justify a large publishing house taking an interest. I run a small not-for-profit publishing business, and have so far published books about the Siamese, Snowshoe, and Burmese breeds which were written by people with particular expertise or interest, and whose information needed to reach a wider public in a good quality format.

My main cat book is
Inside Tonkinese, which you can read about here, and see many of the pictures in my Tonkinese photo album. Apart from that I'm very interested in historical texts and have published a number of things relating to the early Siamese. Click on 'more details' below to see more information about each book.
