Literary pumpkins carved by AbeBooks


The AbeBooks’ marketing has celebrated Halloween with a pumpkin carving session where carvers had to create literary pumpkins. The one lesson that we learned is that artistic pumpkin carving is actually very challenging. We have a new appreciation for the people who create detailed masterpieces out of a common, rather bland-tasting, squash.

Behold, literary pumpkins from Sherlock Holmes to a Penguin and a Penguin bookshelf to Pynchon to V for Vendetta to Oliver Twist to The Raven.

And the odd thing was that no-one did Harry Potter.
