Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark: Gammell vs Helquist

A few examples (since i can only fit 10) comparing the illustrations of Gammell and Helquist in the 30th Anniversary edition of “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark”

1) Title Page

2) The Walk

3) The Haunted House

4) The Red Spot

5) Harold

I feel like the older illustrations were what made the stories even scarier.
