Nightmares of Halloween Past by Gary Baseman

“I call her Boo, the little girl in the homemade ghost costume standing proudly alongside her peers. At that mid-twentieth-century Halloween, I imagine that she begins her initiation into a secret order joining the big kids on the block. Boo participates in a holiday that permits dead souls, devils, and witches—not evil characters, but pseudo-scary ones that are there for fun and play.”
  —Gary Baseman

On March 20, the artist Nathalie Lété asked to her fans to send her a pic of their favorite toy, and then chose 60 of them to make beautiful pieces of art. Beloved Toys is a 128-page, large-format book, covered with a pale pink cloth, which collects all these drawings, the photos that inspired them, and the stories that accompanied them.
