This past Sunday, E. B. Hudspeth, author/illustrator of The Resurrectionist, spent the afternoon recreating the book's magnificent and wonderfully creepy cover in chalk on the sidewalk outside NYC's The Strand bookstore. Didn't catch it? Not to worry—the whole thing's been filmed in a super-cool time lapse so you can watch the art as it unfolds live! Check it out.

Blair Thornburgh

Blair Thornburgh is an assistant editor at Quirk Books. A native Philadelphienne and apparent devotée of gendered demonyms, she makes a mean plate of scrambled eggs, a much friendlier cup of coffee, and would love to talk to you about (or in) multiple dead languages. Hwæt!
