We fully endorse book art here on Book Riot. In our case, we define it as any art that hacks away directly at the physical book, tears it apart, guts it, and somehow makes it new.
And, with that definition, it’s pretty perfect for Halloween, right?
Let’s get our fright on with these fiercely creepy examples of book art for Halloween. (And some are even available for purchase–find the source following each image.)
