Description
Ocker profiles the infamous real-life items that have intersected with some of the most notable events and people in history-- leaving death and destruction in their wake. They can be found in museums, graveyards, and private homes, and their bizarre stories have inspired countless horror movies, reality TV shows, novels, and campfire tales. From the Raggedy Ann doll that spawned the horror franchise The Conjuring, to the mummy rumored to have sunk the Titanic and kickstarted World War I, Ocker has compiled a fascinating-- and sometimes spine-chilling-- book. -- adapted from back cover
