Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000)
Illustration from Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot
Author and master illustrator Edward St. John Gorey (American, 1925–2000) lent his sharp wit and nimble hand to the book jacket and interior illustrations for Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot, with which Gorey’s legacy is now inextricably linked. He held a great affection for felines and shared his Cape Cod house and New York apartment full of books, art, and a miscellany of fascinating objects with a certain number of, ahem, practical cats.
