This book is about a traditional Japanese monsters story, and it is inspired by the Japanese stitch. It is an 8.5 inch by 5.5 inch book with paperback. Hyakki Yagyo is about two worlds in this plant; one is for human beings, and another one is for ghosts and monsters. According to the story, ghosts and monsters are active when it becomes night after all the people are going to sleep in summer, and it looks like a festival. Why I decide to make a book to talk about these monsters? I am personally really interesting all the different shapes of the monsters, and they also have their own ability and personality, or I should say “monsnality”? Anyway, I want to make a traditional Asian culture book with the Japanese stitch, and it is how Hyakki Yagyo comes out.
