nostalgie de la bibliothèque

While checking out book blogs I stumbled on a reference to “Spooks and Spirits and Shadowy Shapes” , featuring wonderfully atmospheric, period illustrations by Robert L. Doremus. Certainly not the most interesting Halloween reading, but personally significant as I remember checking out the book from my local library as a small child. Visits to the “big” library were the highlight of my otherwise uninspiring childhood and I seem to have lasting memories of many borrowed books.
