Who doesn't love a good ghost story? This gorgeous, coffee-table art book is a compendium of old, forgotten haunted houses imagined by artist Ben Carmull, along with the stories and rumours of who haunts them and why. Each spread features a different haunted house, lovingly and exquisitely rendered in scratchboard on Masonite with a short, nightmare-inducing description of each scene. Catmull's images are evocative, haunting masterpieces that never tread in graphic imagery, choosing instead to suggest horrors far more frightening than what they explicitly depict.
