Edward Gorey Boxed Thank You Notes
Ten 3½ x 5 in. blank notecards with envelopes in an acetate-topped box
Illustration by Edward Gorey
Edward Gorey (1925–2000) is best remembered for his humorously morbid illustrated books —The Gashlycrumb Tinies, The Deranged Cousins, The Blue Aspic, and others. He won two Tony Awards for his big 1977 Broadway hit production of Dracula, and he wrote the opening animated sequences to the PBS television series Mystery! Yet he also created purely lighthearted works, including many drawings of anthropomorphic animals, such as the playful cat featured on these Thank You Notes.
