This book. I don't know where to start. I am so stoked I got this thing. I have always been into Japanese culture, myths, and tattoos. This book nails down all that. It is graphic, I would recommend this for mature readers. If you are a tattoo artist, I can see where this is just a gold bar of inspiration. Seriously I treasure this thing and I don't even tattoo.

Wish it had more creatures and maybe some more fluff in greater detail but its still enough to get the gist about the creatures it does have. Plus it has various art styles of each creature which was awesome. And the overall quality of the book itself is very nice. Its good for inspiration to draw something but if you're looking for a lot of lore you should look elsewhere.

A most impressive collection of Japanese motifs by various tattoo artists. Gomineko's latest release charges several artists from around the world to submit their own interpretations of various Japanese mythical creatures. An enjoyable and educational addition to any artist's (of the tattoo persuasion or otherwise) reference library!

This is the newest book of renown publisher Gomineko from Japan. Once again she has managed to get some of the most influential tattoo artists of the industry to draw up a demon each for her publication on Japanese Yokai Ghosts and Demons. Very recommended and great value for money!

Not only inspiring, informative and outright awesome, this collection of myth and art is something to be cherished by any connoisseur of religious/mythical/theologic art! The modern artistic interpretations of ancient japanese myth are so fantastic and true to the original myths that they could have been painted centuries ago. Timeless myth. Timeless art. I would venture to say anyone with an interest in myth would be interested in the mythic art surrounding the subject and would fully enjoy the contents of this well constructed and thought out book. Don't let this one go by the wayside. Pick up a copy and share this interesting and inspiring publication!
