Rabbit Books

Posted in Flotsam by carrielizabethompson on March 29, 2010

When I was young my mother collected antiques. She specialized in antique rabbit items. She had rabbit chocolate molds, rabbit furniture for children, stuffed rabbit toys, but my favorite was a little book named: Four Little Bunnies.

While I was in Japan I met a rabbit named Goma. I am now obsessed with rabbits and photographers who make books and photographs about rabbits.

This is a beautiful rabbit photo by Rinko Kawauchi

And this is the new In Almost Every Picture 8. Its the story of Oolong a Japanese rabbit.

Does anyone know of any other good photography books about rabbits?

    I have what I think is the best photography book about rabbits ever — Rosemarie Trockel’s Loffel + Mirabelle. It even features the same stuffed animal bunny I had growing up.

    No rabbit recommendations but a rabbit website: http://www.bunnylicious.org. They featured my favorite photograph of a rabbit by Hiroh Kikai, http://www.bunnylicious.org/?p=1061

    I love Oolong under nori. Looks almost like Alec’s camouflage!

    You know, off the top of my head I can hardly think of any photographs of rabbits, except a beauty Tom Arndt took of a girl holding her State Fair bunny. Almost too poignant to look at, but the girl has a look of toughness that saves it.

    Perfect seasonal fare, CET. Nicely chosen.

    Christian, Angora looks like a great book, but what a sad story. LRM that books scares me, the rabbit looks possessed. George, thanks for the photo recommendation. Margaret where do I find Rosemarie Trockel’s Loffel + Mirabelle? Marc, I love the rabbit photo, what a great rabbit dress!

    The first time I picked up this book at Kinokuniya in New York I didn’t buy it and regretted the decision for months. The second time I picked it up I bought it. Now I think back to the first time and say to myself: you are very lucky they still had it. (Silly story.)

    I’m very fond of hasenpfeffer. Otherwise, bunnies don’t do much for me. Too many of them eating up valuable foliage around my place. Almost as bad as deer. OG
