Description
 
Asian myths and folktales comprise a vast body of lore. From Chinese folklore to Japanese legends and Indian myths, they include elements from a dizzying array of religions, including Buddhism and Shinto, and they contain the historical traces of thousands of years of migration and cultural interchange. Through the form of illustration, the artists in this volume portray these ancient stories in a visual, artistic and intuitive way, re-interpreting their philosophies and aesthetics.

The Other World features the expressive works of fifty distinguished illustrators who are passionate about Asian myths and folklore. The book contains both single and series illustration, and aims to explore the tacit connection between illustrated works and Asian myths and to serve as inspiration for both illustrators and lovers of stories.

The Other World: Asian Myths and Folklore Illustrations, Gingko Press, Hardcover (8.5" x 10.5"), 240 pages, $39.95
