Description

It is not really a book for somebody who has a deep knowledge on the topic already, more of a general overview, but it is still, in my opinion, worth picking up, especially for Halloween time. I love that it mentions positive ghost experiences like the Mexican Day of the Dead festival, ghosts can get a lot of negative press when they're often not violent or even inclined to interact! Instead, Ghosts feels much more targeted towards much younger readers and offers a very high-level overview of a broad variety of things pertinent to ghosts, but never really leverages the spooky subject matter or the unique advantages of illustration to offer something more tangible. Like Adam Allsuch Boardman’s earlier work with Nobrow Press, An Illustrated History of UFOs, An Illustrated History of Ghosts is a stylishly produced, colorful piece of graphic art that provides a basic but thorough introduction to ghostly myths and legends throughout the world. I think this one appealed to me a little bit more, guess I’m just more of a ghost fan than aliens, but I feel that each of these works, with their useful glossaries and resources, would be quite appropriate for teens and preteens who are interested in outré subjects.

The prose could have been a little more professionally written with smoother transitions and better care taken to juggle reader interest and information.ISBN: 9781913123079 Author: Boardman, Adam Allsuch Publisher: Nobrow Publication Date: 1st September 2022 Imprint: Nobrow Cover: Hardback Dewey: 133.

Following his degree, Adam served a year as the Students' Union President whilst simultaneously working as a freelance illustrator.It looks beautiful as a ‘coffee table book’, the illustrations and fun and it’s definitely something for paranormal enthusiasts. Those who already know a good bit may find some interesting information on where certain ghosts originated from and more! I guess I just read too many magic books as a kid and am used to the "A good magician never reveals his secrets" stick. I’m also unsure who the intended audience is - the illustrations and the simple writing style would suggest a younger audience but some of the content would probably be over their heads. This book has been put together in a fantastic way and the text complements the illustrations perfectly.
