This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Yokai - monsters from Japanese folklore - are some of the zaniest and wildest things ever imagined up. From the mists of Japanese prehistory, through the medieval ages, up to today, the bestiary of Japanese folklore contains a wide range of monsters. There are women with extra mouths in the backs of their heads, water goblins whose favorite food is human anus, elephant-dragons which feed solely on bad dreams, dead baby zombies, talking foxes, fire-breathing chickens, animated blobs of rotten flesh that run about the streets at night. "The Night Parade of One Hundred Demons" is a massive illustrated bestiary choc full of yokai. It features over one hundred traditional Japanese monsters, each one beautifully illustrated in full color by yokai artist Matthew Meyer. Each yokai is described in detail, including origins, habitat, diet, and legend, based on translations from centuries-old Japanese texts. Read this book, and the next time you watch an anime or a Godzilla movie, youll be able to recognize their folkloric ancestors dating back centuries. Youll find out about all of the strange mythical animals you can see at temples and shrines, on beer can labels, and even on Japanese money. Meet the predecessors to Pokemon, Power Rangers, scary J-horror girls, and all of the strange creatures that pop up in Japanese video games. "Night Parade" will turn anyone with a passing interest in Japanese folklore into a full-blown yokai expert. Codice inventario libreria ABE_book_usedgood_0985218401

L'autore: Matthew Meyer grew up in the Jersey-side suburbs of Philadelphia. He graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL in 2005, majoring in illustration. During college he spent a month-long homestay study abroad program in Kanazawa, Japan. There he was inspired by Japanese art and culture, which strongly influence his art style. In 2007, he moved back to Japan and has been been living in rural Fukui prefecture with his wife since then.

Matthew's interest in art goes back to his early childhood. Drawing was his favorite hobby, and for most of his youth he had a pencil in his left hand and a mouse in his right. From a very early age he has enjoyed using both physical drawing and painting media as well as digital tools to make his art.

Most of his recent work, including The Night Parade of One Hundred Demons, is done on a digital painting tablet using GIMP and MyPaint on Ubuntu Linux. His artistic inspiration comes from Japanese ink paintings and woodblock prints, and the masters of fantasy illustration.
