Spanning his ten-year engagement with the British furry fandom subculture, Tom Broadbent's At Home With The Furries takes a fluffy, scaly and feathery peek at a community of people who happen to identify as animal characters.
Featuring Syrrus, a fox and Lupestripe, a wolf having a barbecue at home in Leeds, as shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2018, and Smirnoff, a husky wolf from the book, 1001 Photographs You Must See Before You Die (Paul Lowe), all the photographs are taken in the furries' homes, gardens and favourite local haunts.
"Tom Broadbent's exploration of the Furries is sensitive, witty and informative. It's all you need to gain an insight into this fascinating subculture whose only limits are that of their imaginations. If only everyday life was as much fun as the pages of this book" Laura Noble
With essays by photography gallerist and curator Laura Noble and Uncle Kage, Chairman of Anthrocon, one of the biggest furry conventions in the world.
Beautifully printed in full off-set litho in a first print run of 750 copies, the book is printed on two different paper stocks, has a foil-blocked furry cover and includes essays from Laura Noble and Uncle Kage. It contains over 30 amazing colour portraits of furries from around the UK and an illustrated sketchbook introducing the furries to you.
