Kaibutsu Ehon (1881)

"The Kaibutsu Ehon (“Illustrated Book of Monsters”) features woodblock prints of yōkai, or creatures from Japanese folklore. Illustrated by painter Nabeta Gyokuei, the book is modeled after the influential works of Toriyama Sekien, an 18th-century scholar and ukiyo-e artist known for his attempt to catalog the many species of yōkai in Japan.”

lonelands said: When you find this is your ask, share five facts about yourself and then pass it on to your ten favorite followers

1. I love going through antique shops. I’m trying to collect fashion plates from the 1800’s and earlier. 

2. Have an affinity for puns, you’ll hear them wether you want to or not around me. I’m real pun to be around though.

3. Not a big fan of Mexican food or Chipoltes.

4. I recently learned to whistle for the first time in 19 years of being alive; still can’t snap. 

5.  Need to build a nest of pillows before going to sleep. I don’t know how people can sleep with only a single pillow.
