Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0981615724, Paperback)

Japanese Ghost Stories is the end result of a year long art project coordinated by Gomineko in Tokyo, Japan. It includes illustrations based on four different Japanese ghost stories, submitted by 62 unique international artists, including Horimouja, Horimasa, Ade, Cody Meyer, Tim Kern, Horizaru, Horigyn, Hougen and many more. The project was created to explore how Westerners approach old Japanese myths and legends, most of which are quite culturally diverse and unique. The artists were asked to adhere to certain elements of the story but ultimately were given creative license. The artwork submitted for the project was incredibly varied in terms of style and approach, making this a compelling collection of illustrations and an interesting look into how the western mind, as well as that of present day Japan, approach these antiquated tales.
