About the author

Marion Paull is an editor and writer who has worked in publishing for many years, specializing in reference and general non-fiction titles. She has long been fascinated by tales of Hallowe’en in all its old-fashioned glory. Married to a Cornishman, from the extreme south-west of England, she has a special interest in all things Celtic. The author is based in London, UK.

Read how folk used to celebrate with dressing up, fortune-telling games, parties, and much pleasurable spookiness, and recreate your own vintage Hallowe’en with old-fashioned projects, including a carved Jack o’ lantern, a witch costume, and fun decorations for your home. Creating your Vintage Hallowe’en is packed full of little-known facts about the origins of Hallowe’en customs such as bobbing for apples and carving lanterns out of pumpkins, while the charming makes and vintage artworks featuring chubby, red-cloaked witches, sleekly silhouetted black cats, cute kittens, cheery goblins, and smiling spectres, will inspire you to have your own vintage-style Hallowe’en celebration.
