Frightening Illustrations in Japanese Children's Books

Gōjin Ishihara was a Japanese artist whose was in demand in the 1970s as a children's book illustrator. He made graphic depictions for stories that are, uh, a bit different from what you might find in American children's books today. Pink Tentacle has a compilation of 16 such images from his work, such as the above 1975 image from The Illustrated Book of Hell.
