2nd edition

“Afterword” is composed of photos used in the afterword ’Sasuke’s Diary’ from “Sasuke, My Dear Cat”, published by Seinen Shokan in 1978. In the small pocket-sized printing manuscript were instructions and numbering written by Fukase himself.
Sasuke the First went missing quite early on, but some time afterwards, someone who had seen the ‘missing’ posters delivered a kitten to Fukase thinking it was probably Sasuke. While they did indeed look alike, the kitten turned out not to be Sasuke after all.
Fukase, however, named this kitten Sasuke and ended up loving him like his own. He took Sasuke out with him wherever he went: to Harajuku, on express trains, even to Ueno Zoo and the seaside. The depth of Fukase’s affection (who called himself Sasuke's "papa") is visible in each single photo of the cat's charming visage. A near-maddening amount of lovely scenes continue page turn after page turn in this wonderful photo book - a masterpiece that belongs on the shelf of a loved one.
