Illustrated Book of Japanese Monsters by Gojin Ishihara

Onward with the scary illustrations. Another children’s book illustrator by the name of Gojin Ishihara terrified a generation of Japanese kids in the 70’s and continues to do so today with classic monsters with an Eastern twist. Head over to PinkTentacle.com for the complete collection but these are my faves.
