lllustration for Cultural Slag
Tantalizingly witty author and illustrator Edward St. John Gorey was a master of mystery, beloved for the nimble imagination and sharp humor exhibited in his more than one hundred published works. In crosshatched drawings, curious characters slink through tales of intrigue set in Gorey’s vaguely Edwardian worlds, where one never knows who—or what—they might encounter. Broadly talented, Gorey was also a playwright, a Tony Award–winning set and costume designer, creator of the animated introduction to the PBS series Mystery!, bibliophile, and ardent lover of cats.
