Spooky X-Ray Art

Need some help getting into the Halloween spirit? Check out this National Geographic feature, showcasing art by Nick Veasey, who's medium is X-rays. He's got spiders, teddy bears, buses, bats and people, all shown from the inside out.

The X-rays taken at your doctor's office are exposed for only a few seconds. Veasey often erradiates his subjects for minutes, sometimes hours to capture the haunting transparent images in his collection. Planning and setup can take hours or days. If the ghostly images don't put you in the mood for Halloween, hopefully they will at least  get you thinking about What Lies Beneath. 

Still need help getting ready for Halloween? Search our catalog for books, DVDs and other media about this spookiest time of year, or read up on the science of X-Rays, including THIS BOOK about X-Raying the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt!

Reminder: We are closed today, tomorrow and Monday for carpet cleaning.
