Gary Baseman offers you a nostalgic and eerie tribute to one of America’s favorite holidays through his personal collection of vintage Halloween pictures.
In Nightmares of Halloween Past, Gary Baseman presents for the first time his unique collection of found vernacular Halloween-themed pictures collected over the last twenty years. Here, you can discover photos he has gathered at garage and yard sales, thrift stores,and received as submissions from online fans, all presented in this dark and eerie photobook of adults and children on All Hallows' Eve.
The photos compiled here speak a thousand words and inspire a thousand more questions. What might first appear scary will soon become endearing when you realize that many faces under the ghoulish masks and macabre costumes are smiling and having fun. A must for any Halloween and Americana lover!
