Night Parade of Dead Souls: Japanese Ghost Paintings

Author(s): Jack Hunter

japanese tattoo | african, asian & oceanic art

The female ghost, or Yurei ('faded spirit'), is perhaps the most recognisable figure in Japanese horror culture, powerfully reinforced through the success of Japanese ghost films such as Ringu (The Ring) and Ju-On (The Grudge). Night Parade of Dead Souls, the first book of its kind to be published in English, collects 70 of the most striking and disturbing Japanese ghost images from classic art, and offers an essential glimpse into the twilight strata of Japanese art, popular myth and religious belief.
