In the 18th century, Japanese artist Toryama Sekien attempted to depict each spirit of the Yokai tradition - an ancient race of demons whose descendents would later terrorise the earth under the guises of Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan. Now, two men aim to rediscover the near-forgotten Yokai and return these ancient beasts to their former glory. 14 spirits and demons are lovingly rendered by Ben Newman in his inimitable bold and colourful illustration style, incorporating worldwide themes from European deco to Japanese film posters and 1950s American cartoons.
