As the days begin to shorten and the nights stretch out long and dark, we feel All Hallows’ Eve approaching. Dogs howl for no apparent reason, things go bump in the night, and black cats seem to slink around every corner. Over the month of October we will bring you bits of the macabre housed in our special collections. Above, Barry Moser, internationally renowned illustrator and UTC alum, sets the tone for our homage to all things sinister in Cemetery (an engraved print) .
Join us for the month of October as we visit demons and devils, ghosts and ghouls, and the evils that lurk within the living. During the month we would love to hear about your favorite Halloween reads or movies in the comments to our posts. Also, get your costumes ready for our annual Lupton Library Costume Contest on Halloween. More details to come.
