Calling all cat lovers! The zine features around 200 pages of cat-related illustrations, photos, and text.

MANILA, Philippines — Heads up, cat lovers! All three volumes of CATipunan: Furrtraits are out, and they’re 200 pages of cat portraits explored through photography, writing, and art. 

From feminist independent publishing company Gantala Press, the zine features a lengthy roster of talented contributors – fondly referred to as “furrents” – who have come together to tell stories of their brave, fun-loving, and resilient feline friends. 

While these cats have different backgrounds, personalities, and stories to tell, they do have one thing in common: they sure are loved! 

CATipunan currently has three volumes: Volume 1 for illustrations, Volume 2 for photography, and Volume 3 for poetry and prose. Readers can buy physical copies of each volume on Gantala Press’ Shopee page for 500 pesos in total. PDF versions are also available for purchase on Gantala’s official website

All earnings from the zine will be donated to local cat rescue groups. – with reports from Andrea Ebdane/
