Visual art and storytelling have a long and colourful history, a piece of which this book attempts to recapture.
What you see is a volume of tales woven by fine artists from all over Canada, taking inspiration from ghost stories, folk tales and urban legends.
Ghost Stories represents an attempt to harken back to a time of hieroglyphics, cave paintings and great literature made whole by the work of a fine artist; to a place where folks paid attention when a tale was being told.
So venture forth, dear reader, into these pages that contain the macabre, the horrific, and the wondrous. Let the words and images keep you up at night, enchanted by a tale of whimsy – or wondering what that was that just brushed the bottom of your foot.
