Its beckoning paw has a cult fanbase, 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 shops and homes across Japan, China, and beyond. The lucky cat (or maneki neko in Japanese) has a long history dating back to the 17th century that's packed with fascinating folklore, serious symbolism and countless contemporary cat spin-offs. Its paw, bib, coin, collar, and colors all have meaning.

Did you know a pink 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 right paw is found in homes as talisman? Dive into this adorable book to find out all you need to know about the beautiful lucky cat.

About Chronicle Books

Chronicle Books is an independent publisher based in California that has been making things since the Summer of Love. We are inspired by the enduring magic of books, and by sparking the passions of others. As soon as you pick up our publishing, we want you to be able to tell that what you're holding comes from us. We consider every detail, and ask questions like these: does the design support and enhance the content? How does it feel in your hands? What special touches can we add to make it an object you'll treasure? We apply this approach to everything we make, whether it’s a book, journal, game, ebook, or our newest invention. Based in San Francisco, our headquarters are in an old maritime machine shop and warehouse.
