Animal Inventory Blog

Keeping track of animals in popular culture.


Animals play a vibrant role in all kinds of art. Below I’ve listed media that have a unique perspective on animals. (Disclaimer: I only list media that I myself have read or watched, either in full or in part, and I only list what I truly recommend. Don’t hesitate to send me suggestions so I can read (view) them and add them to this list!)



Graphic Novels



Books about Animals in Art

Animal Ethics, Philosophy and Theory

    Really great resources here! Under fiction, Ruth Ozeki’s “My Year of Meats” perhaps belongs (maybe you didn’t like it). Will have a look at the graphic novels you list and much else too.

    Hi Jean,
    Thanks for your comment. I didn’t include Ruth Ozeki’s book only because I have not yet read it. Great recommendation — I’ll have to pick it up!

    It’s serious animal stuff…but so fun. Fun enough for the beach. Hope you like it!

    Lisa, have you not read any Farley Mowatt? Specifically “The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be.” That book will slay you. But he has written many books which deal with animals – one about a great horned owl which lived in his house. Can you imagine? He is one of the greats whom no doubt you’ll find very informative and fun.

      Thanks for your comment. Lives of the Monster Dogs is a wonderful book. (If there are any animal studies literature professors looking for books to add to their course list, I highly recommend Kirsten’s unique novel!) Please keep me posted on any new animal-related projects you’re working on.
