Edition statement from inside edge of front cover.
"Whilst traveling to work it was noted, by certain keen individuals, that the world appeared to be full of beings: other than the everyday. With the assistance of an adapted mobile phone camera these ghosts, animal spirits, numen and peri that crowd around us can now be revealed. Mostly captured during regular days--frequently when rain was in the sky. If they talked at all: they seemed to talk to the soul ... at this stage in our research we still have no idea what they said. So far, we have managed to identify only a few of them--what we know is here, along with our clearest photos and some of our thoughts."--Introduction.
