Celebrate Halloween and Baseman’s favorite holiday with a copy of Nightmares of Halloween Past, Vintage Photographs from the Collection of Gary Baseman

Eerie, nostalgic and endearing, Nightmares of Halloween Past is a tribute to the real people, the anonymous subjects and snapshooters that captured these photographs. These candid images reveal to us a photographic aesthetic that is both familiar and humorous, showing the evolution of the celebration of All Hallows’ Eve. 

Nightmares of Halloween Past includes text by Gary Baseman, as well as scholarly essays by Phyllis Galembo and Catherine Zuromskis on the history of Halloween costumes and photography.
