Monsters of Louisiana (An Illustrated Guidebook)
Materials: cardboard, tissue paper, ink, paper, light
The eerie landscape of Louisiana has given rise to many splendid and terrifying folk legends. In this 14-page guidebook, you will learn about some of the monsters, spirits, and demons that have haunted the imaginations of Louisiana residents for hundreds of years.
Each monster is beautifully illustrated using a mixture of layered cardboard, ink, light, and shadow; and each full-page illustration is accompanied by a researched description of the legend behind the monster. The subjects chosen for this book range from Choctaw legends to suburban boogeymen. With this guide to Louisiana's spookiest monsters, you will learn to spot the difference between a harmless cow and a shapeshifter who wants to eat your soul; why you should never stop the car for a goat; and why you really, really shouldn't gossip.

Thanks so much! This is a great little book, with really cool art. (Also came with a thank-you card that was a work of art in itself). FYI, I knew about this book because the Glitter Box N.O. mentioned it on their FB page. Sometimes that kind of info is useful. :)
Such a cool little book. Made me very happy to see our legends this way, great job. Love it so much!
This unique and scary booklet arrived quickly and was everything it promised to be. It is a booklet of photographed art images of, I think, quite frightening, Monsters of Louisiana fame. The pictures were evocative and the descriptions well-researched and informative. I highly recommend!
