Nightmares of Halloween Past

Gary Baseman


In Nightmares of Halloween Past, Gary Baseman presents for the first time his unique collection of found Halloween-themed pictures collected over the last 20 years. Discover photos he has gathered from various garage and yard sales, thrift stores and submissions from online fans in this dark and eerie photobook filled with pictures taken of adults and children on All Hallows’ Eve.

The photos compiled here speak a thousand words and leave 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!
