It may be summer, but celebrated artist Ben Catmull will bring the darkness with the hometown launch of his latest work, Ghosts and Ruins!
On Thursday, August 1st, at 7:00 PM, we'll celebrate the release of this beautiful book at Diesel, A Bookstore. Take in the wonder of the haunted houses within the pages, each lovingly and exquisitely rendered in scratchboard on masonite, with a short, nightmare-inducing description of the scene.
In Ben's words, it is "...a compendium of old, forgotten haunted houses, their strange histories, and the experiences of those brave enough to visit. It is highly recommended that you read this book alone late at night in the dark, far away from civilization, preferably during a power outage."
Diesel, A Bookstore is located at 5433 College Avenue in Oakland.
