UKIYO-E - "images from the floating world" - were the most popular art-form of 19th century Japan. Like modern-day manga, these prints could be mass-produced and were admired by people from all sectors of society; and as in manga, the art of ukiyo-e included significant sub-genres dealing in violence, erotica and horror. With unflinching images of weird sex, bloody carnage and grotesque, demonic ghosts and monsters, "Dream Spectres" is a powerful collection of the extremes of ukiyo-e, featuring the work of such artists as Yoshitoshi, Ekin, Kunichika, Yoshiiku, Kunisada, Hokusai, Kuniyoshi, Yoshitsuya, Hiroshige, Kyosai, and Chikanobu. "Dream Spectres" features over 170 amazing full-colour images, including the complete Eimei Nijuhasshuku ("28 Blood Atrocities") of Yoshitoshi and Yoshiiku, and ranges in content from bondage and bestiality to decapitations, demons and designs for classic irezumi (body tattoos). This is Japanese art not only at its extremes of imagination, but often at its most highly accomplished and innovative. This new, revised, enlarged and expanded edition of "Dream Spectres" is presented in large-format and full-colour throughout. The Ukiyo-e Master Series: presenting seminal collections of art by the greatest print-designers and painters of Edo-period and Meiji-period Japan.

UKIYO-E, the art of woodblock design and printing, enjoyed a symbiosis with the kabuki theatre almost from its inception in the late 17th century, with a significant number of images devoted to the popular theatre. These comprise kabuki-e - dynamic frames, diptychs and triptychs recreating specific scenes from plays - and yakusha-e - portraits of famous actors in various roles both real and imaginary. Amongst those producing theatrical prints were some of the greatest ukiyo-e artists of the century, including Kunisada, Kuniyoshi, and finally Kunichika, who introduced dramatic new framing to the format and persisted until the very last days of the century, when prints were finally usurped by the new medium of photography. DREAM SPECTRES 2 is devoted to the art of kabuki-e and yakusha-e, and collects some of the most striking and innovative prints by these and many other artists, focusing principally on three of the Japanese theatre's most spectacular and sensational themes - ghosts, magic, and mayhem.DREAM SPECTRES 2 is presented in large-format and full-colour throughout, and contains over 200 stunning images which vividly bring back to life the violent clashes, murders, monsters and nightmares of Japan's classical kabuki theatre at its most bizarre and exhilarating extremes. Number 15 in the best-selling Ukiyo-e Master Series.

They're simply to die for . . . or from! They're the demoiselles to haunt your darkest dreams: the deadly, the undead, the dying--and those just looking to make a comeback. Some live for love, or died for love, and some are yet to have had their fill, brave heart. Unquiet and unrequited spirits mingle with bewitching vamps and vamping witches. They're the lovely and the loathly, from ageless glamour to beauty that's only skin deep--or perhaps just a pale reflection. Tales of jealousy, passion and ghostly vengeance, and of girls who just want to have fun. From la femme fatale who set the mode long before Carmilla came to call, to other classic tales, Victorian ""sensation"" stories and even a pinch of pulp fiction, they're all just waiting for you, m'dear. Come and meet the ladies . . .
