Edward GoreyArtist and author Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000) is beloved for the boundless imagination and sharp humor exhibited in his more than 100 published works. Gorey was also a set and costume designer for innumerable theater productions, including a staging of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, for which he won a Tony. He had a profound affection for literature, film, ballet, and animals. Cats and other odd creatures appear in many of his crosshatched illustrations. His humorously unsettling drawings of vaguely Victorian innocents facing unfortunate ends became familiar to a wide audience after appearing in the opening credits of the PBS television series Mystery! Gorey’s Cape Cod home, a veritable cabinet of curiosities, is now a museum celebrating his life and work.
This puzzle is of high quality. The pieces are cut wonderfully and it's easy to tell when it fits. Though only 500 pieces, this is one of the most challenging puzzles I have ever done. It took my partner & I many, many hours to finish since it's in black and white (I recommend using a puzzle mat - mine was bright yellow- or colored backdrop so that you can see each piece. The puzzle was so fun and artistic, we loved solving each section. Enjoy!
Thanks, Clarissa. We're so glad you and your partner enjoyed this one so much! :)
