Amazing and Unique guide to a hidden world,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Night Parade of One Hundred Demons: a Field Guide to Japanese Yokai (Paperback)
This is the result of a Kickstarter crowdfunding project that I backed in a small way so I would receive a copy when it was published. I liked it so much I bought one as a gift for my friend. It's an illustrated field guide to Japanese folklore spirits. Each page is a fully rendered color panel of unique art from the author with a description on the facing page. The art is great Japanese wood-cut 2D sort of style (I'm not really a arty so I'm sure there is a better term for it) and the subject matter is really interesting. Being a westerner, we don't have as rich and diverse a set of boogie-men (and women and animals) in our folklore. It's a great gift as well as a conversation piece or coffee table book.
