Guestbook Ghost Stories by Leanne Shapton Guestbook Ghost Stories Leanne Shapton I really like this book in theory as a collection of eerie vignettes that explore different hauntings through photos and ephemera But while it’s enjoyably creepy eventually the hints and suggestions of ghosts fell short for me It makes sense in a way that the specters feel just out of reach but the sections where the images were paired with text com Guestbook Ghost Stories eBook A one of a kind truly uniue reading experience GUESTBOOK Ghost Stories will alight and frighten and also leave a deep residue begging for another look A blisteringly original artist Leanne Shapton's GUESTBOOK Riverhead March isn't uite an art book isn't uite a traditional narrative but here she effortlessly and brilliantly combines so many different art forms into one highly Guestbook Ghost Stories de Shapton Guestbook explores the glimmering unsettling things that haunt us in the midst of life combining stories vignettes and an evocative curiosity cabinet of artifacts and images found photographs original paintings Instagram style portraits to transform the traditional ghost story into something else entirely PDF Guestbook Ghost Stories ⚣ Author Leanne Shapton PDF Guestbook Ghost Stories ⚣ Author Leanne Shapton – Lavonsco What haunts us What can t we let go of A tennis prodigy collapses after his wins crediting them to an invisible not entirely benevolent presence until one day he vanishes A series of ghosts appear The Stories In 'Guestbook' Linger Like Ghosts | WYPR Guestbook is not exactly a book of ghost stories though its subtitle disagrees It behaves like a short story collection than any other literary form but reading it feels akin to walking through an art exhibit each piece linked in ways that are ineffable but clear And many of Guestbook's sections are art Shapton includes many of her own watercolors and uses photographs as both art Guestbook Ghost Stories Hardcover | Bookends Guestbook Ghost Stories Hardcover By Leanne Shapton On Our Shelves Now on hand as of Jul am Fiction General Description Reading Guestbook feels aki BOOthis book had been on my radar ever since i d seen it pop up prior to its release on a few different horror focused book lists since i am always on the lookout for off kilter horror i snatched it up the week it came out and was instantly struck by what a beautiful thoughtfully designed book it is each story is offset assisted or composed entirely of the author s own photographs and artwork and it looks gorgeous as far as its horror content well let s just say it is so off kilter that it may not be horror no one will ever be scared by this book unless a poltergeist knocks it off the bookshelf or hollows it out and fills the hollows with spiders etc although i ve been conditioned by books like Night Film and House of Leaves to associate floor plans and olde timey photographs with horror stories composed only of these elements which a fair number of these are is not enough to goose my bumps although what have these reindeer seen that is making them so tense to be fair just because i was led to it following a trail of horror breadcrumbs the book itself makes no such claims it identifies itself as a book of ghost stories and it certainly is that haunt ing rather than haunt ed even those stories that are image than text based evoke a particular moodiness less horror than nostalgia where the very nature of photographs as representations or manifestations of something a moment a memory that no longer exists makes them inherently ghostly so in terms of ephemera as ghostiness this book wins and some of them actually do read as horror stories a gentle horror where much is implicit or suggested but it s there if you go looking my favorite story was SIRENA DE GALI which is a perfect example of subtle horror it never announces itself but it is undeniably there in the spooky subtextthis is definitely worth reading but don t let those horror lists mismanage your expectations it s simply a beautiful book whose ghosts aren t trying to scare you or even trying too hard to get your attention in fact i couldn t even locate them in some of these stories which is identical to my experience with ghosts IRL so i m not even ashamed of that fact tl dr BOOcome to my blog
