Description

Painter and multimedia artist Kent Williams depicts the supernatural Japanese stories of Lafcadio Hearn, the wildly popular author of the early 20th century. These stories first appeared in his prose books Kwaidan and Shadowings. Ghost stories, nightmares and strange tales — of possessed forests, of monks tormented by demons and ghosts, of corpse brides, man-eating goblins, and undead samurai. They come to life as never before under Williams’ brush.

Featuring an introduction by filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, a foreword by writer Kyoko Yoshida, and an essay by Hearn’s great-grandson and director of the Lafcadio Hearn Memorial Museum, Bon Koizumi.

Beehive produces super fine quality books, with top drawer paper, design, printing and each with a special die-cut slipcase that ties each new one in with the previous volumes.

Like Jeffrey Jones, Barry Windsor-Smith, and Dave McKean, Kent Williams got his start in comics but has moved into a variety of genres, media and even careers, as he is also an art teacher.
