Evertype presents Lafcadio Hearn's classic tales of ghosts, spirits, and the darker side of the natural world with 20 new linotypes by Mathew Staunton.

"A legend in Ireland and in Japan where his descendants thrive to this day, Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904) was himself drawn to legends, his imagination ignited initially by tales of the Celtic Otherworld and later fuelled by stories of Voodoo magic in Louisiana, an imagination that had its full flowering in far-away Japan where his restless spirit found peace. If you have any few hairs at all on your head, these venerable tales will have them standing up in wonder." -- Gabriel Rosenstock
