Ukiyo-e (images from the floating world') were the most popular art form of 19th century Japan. Like modern-day manga, these prints could be mass-produced and were admired by people from all sectors of society; and as in manga, the art of ukiyo-e included significant sub-genres dealing in violence, erotica and horror. With unflinching images of weird sex, bloody carnage and grotesque, demonic ghosts and monsters, Dream Spectres is a powerful collection of the extremes of Ukiyo-e.'
