Hyakkai-Zukan (百怪図巻, "The Illustrated Volume of a Hundred Demons") is a collection of picture scrolls by Edo Period Japanese artist Sawaki Suushi. Completed in 1737, these scrolls are supernatural bestiaries, collections of ghosts, spirits and monsters, of which Suushi based on literature, folklore, other artwork. These works had a profound influence on subsequent yōkai imagery in Japan for generations.
