Fine Autographs and Artifacts, feat. Horror and Literature
RR is getting creepy with our October auction, with two special feature sections: Horror and Literature.
For this inaugural Horror section, we’re seeking your best items relating to classic films and novels, in all formats. Original screen-worn costumes, signed photographs, autographed books (first-editions especially sought), vintage posters, art, and film props. Do you have items from legendary horror personalities such as Alfred Hitchcock, Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, or Lon Chaney?
The Literature section will tie into Horror, as we seek classic authors like Bram Stoker, Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft; and even modern authors like Stephen King. Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” celebrates the 100th anniversary of its publication this year as well. Items relating to non-horror writers are also invited for our Literature lots.
