Of Halloweens long ago....

This book is a great look back at some vintage Halloween costumes. They range from late 1800s to early 1980s with more focus being on the pre-1960s eras. The reason is that the photographer collects vintage Halloween costumes from around the country. Creating both a collection and a history of Halloween in America. The photography is very well done and the photographer even talks about the methods used which is a very interesting way to make the photos unique and almost come alive. A must see for Halloween devotees interested in costume styles from yesteryear.

Read for Thrills!

This book is filled with wonderful, artistic photos. Galembo's collection thrills anyone interested in costumes and vintage Halloween.


If you have ANY feel for Halloween, BUY this book! It is THAT good! It will remind you of your childhood and the magic that flew through the air on Halloween. HIGHLY reccomended!
