My copy of The Hidden arrived today ... absolutely gorgeous book!!! Reminiscent of Brian Froud's "Faeries" but 100% Inuit folkloric beings rather than European and each beautifully illustrated with a description and quotes from transcribed oral histories.

This is going to be a wonderful treat to read!

Edited to add: The book's artist is actually better known as a tattoist! Interview with him here ... about halfway down he talks about the book and also about the revival of traditional Inuit tattooing.
