Of Ghosts and Goblins


In this haunting collection Of Ghosts and Goblins, the phantoms and ghouls of Japanese folklore stalk the page. Lafcadio Hearn, a master storyteller, drew on traditional Japanese folklore, infused with memories of his own haunted childhood in Ireland, to create these chilling tales. They are today regarded in Japan as classics in their own right. Beautifully designed and printed, this collectible edition is bound in green, tactile cloth and stamped with foil.

‘The stories occupy the reverie world our mind projects onto the backs of our eyelids, where the ordinary mingles with the supernatural’ – Wall Street Journal.
