E-catalogue 97: Have a Very Gorey Christmas!
As the days tick down to the Holidays, we’d like to take a moment to suggest the perfect solution to your gift-giving needs: Edward Gorey. We know what you may be thinking: Gorey? The artist who designed the set for Dracula on Broadway? The author of such works as The Gashlycrumb Tinies and The Beastly Baby?
The very same.
After all, this is the same Edward Gorey who also illustrated many holiday-related titles, such as Polly Redford’s The Christmas Bower, and was the playful producer of a vast zoo of beanbag figures. In fact, if one contemplates the titles of the many books he published under his name, and his many anagrammatic pseudonyms, one will find a treasure-trove of very particular objects: who, on your gift list, wouldn’t thoroughly enjoy an Improvable Landscape, a Just Dessert, or a Retrieved Locket?
Nothing says the holidays quite like Edward Gorey.
