Yokai in ukiyoe masterpieces

$28.00

Japanese folklore is a veritable gold mine of terrifying supernatural figures. Many ukiyoe prints from the Edo period (1603-1868) depict these monstrous beings that populate legends, folktales, and horror stories. The volume contains 70 yūrei (apparitions), oni (demons), kaijin (humanoid monsters) and yōkai in the strict sense (ghosts and demonic creatures) vibrantly described in 120 works of art by great masters such as Hokusai, Hiroshige and Kuniyoshi. It is a rich repertoire of images passed down for generations: many of Japan's current artistic genres, such as manga and video games, draw inspiration from these prints.

Reasons of interest:

  • The story of the most incredible beings of Japanese legends in the prints of the greatest ukiyoe artists
  • A world teeming with magical and often frightening creatures, whose appearance the volume reconstructs in detail based on tradition
  • A reference book for fans of Japanese culture and folk art
  • A collection that offers new ideas to creatives looking for inspiration for design and tattoo art
  • Format 19 × 23.8 cm
  • 240 PAGES
  • 4 COLOR PRINTING
  • PAPERBACK WITH JACKET
  • ISBN 978 2 88935 889 2
