About this deal

I didn’t expect the book to go into such detail about things that I, personally, might not have even associated with ghosts (such as magicians). 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.

There is also a unique guide on the different types of ghost and yes there is more than one type of ghost which was news to me. This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book, especially for anyone who wants to learn a bit more about the history behind ghosts, especially from different backgrounds and cultures. I would have loved to read something like this when I was younger and in my first moment of awe and insistence of watching ghost hunting videos and shows and adamant that ghosts and spirits are real. I liked the illustrations of this book too, I think they went well with the overall presentation of the book.

Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item.

Boardman's artistic style is clean and crisp but I found the overall experience pretty surface level as a newbie to this series.My favourite thing about this book is that whilst it is marketed as adult fiction and was perfectly suitable for 20 year old me, my 17 year old brother (who normally has an aversion to reading) sat down with it for 45 minutes flickering through and having conversations with me about how certain elements matched his computer games or things he’d seen on tv and we really enjoyed flipping through the book together because of this vibrant, sectioned format. Whether you are a ghost fanatic or simply piqued by curiosity, you’ll get a robust deep dive into the experiences of paranormal occurrences, alternative explanations for these occurrences, and our culture’s fascination with them.
