Description
Mysterious, close encounters can be found in many Edward Gorey drawings. Here, amid elegant furnishings and a sometimes-portentous atmosphere, his characters wine and dine, conduct flirtatious—perhaps chance—encounters, and dance to the tune of their iconic creator. His drawings and stories, set in a vaguely Edwardian time frame with a decidedly English overtone, exhibit a special genius for what is left unseen and unwritten. As evident herein, Gorey's skillful crosshatchery often presents the point just before the crescendo of events and then lets the imagination draw the ominous or hilarious conclusion.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
