About the Author:

Stephen Addiss is professor of art history at the University of Kansas and a specialist in the arts of Japan.

From Library Journal:

This exhibition catalog examines the extensive body of Japanese folklore and literature dealing with supernatural subjects and the treatment of these subjects in various media (prints, paintings, sculpture, netsuke, masks) and by many artists. There are essays of varying quality on ghosts, demons, and other supernatural phenomena, illustrated with good color and black-and-white plates; each author attempts to connect the artistic treatments of the subjects with social events and daily life of the times, which provides some thought-provoking reading. Not an essential pur chase, but interesting for special col lec tions as a reasonably priced work on a unique subject. Patricia R. Hausman, Williamsburg Regional Lib., Va.
