Kako | New Book Avantesmas | 13 Classic Ghost Stories

July 11, 2014    Kako
Here’s a new incredible project by KAKO called “Avantesmas” commissioned by Autêntica. Kako illustrated thirteen Histórias Clássicas de Fantasmas, a collection of thirteen classic ghost stories selected by Claudio Blanc and published by Autêntica. Avantesmas was only published in Portuguese, but for those still interested in purchasing a copy of the book, feel free to send an email to the publisher. We might also make some prints in the near future, so stay tuned. We are so excited to finally share this project. The complete project can be also seen on Kako’s Behance portfolio here.
