Spend a ghoulishly delightful evening making traditional paper toys with a spooky twist! Watch jack-o-lanterns come alive with a 19th-century pre-animation toy known as a phenakistoscope. Mix and match Halloween masks in a dos-si-dos booklet inspired by the surrealist game “exquisite corpse.” Terrify your easily spooked friends with a ghoul rising from the grave in a sliding-lid surprise box. Book art experience is helpful but not necessary to partake in the festivities.
