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 on a different topic just felt annoying rather than deep. Ultimately the promise of Guestbook just didn’t manifest for me.
