Description

Ghosts, demons, Yokai ... This is the nightmarish collection of supernatural beings from Japanese folklore as portrayed in ukiyo-e masterpieces. This book contains 70 yurei (ghosts), oni (demons), kaijin (sorcerers) and yokai (supernatural monsters) with a basic introduction to each creature's story. These phantoms and monsters are described vividly in 120 ukiyo-e art pieces, all created by great masters such as Hokusai, Hiroshige, Kuniyoshi and many others.
