Fortissimo! A Tribute to Opera Notecard Folio

$10.95

The high drama of opera is well suited to Edward Gorey’s oeuvre. He designed the sets and costumes for a Peter Sellars production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni with the New Hampshire Symphony in 1980, and his book The Blue Aspic is the story of an operatic understudy turned diva and her singularly obsessed fan. The images in this folio could easily portray characters from Wagner and Verdi, each presenting a man and woman in all their glory, suited up in extravagant operatic costumes and no doubt belting out heart-throbbing duets. Contains five each of two notecards featuring drawings of opera singers
• 10 blank notecards (5 each of 2 designs) with envelopes
• Decorative wallet-style folio
• Printed in full color on recycled paper with soy-based inks
• High-quality 250 gsm card stock
• Soft white envelopes
• Pomegranate’s notecard folios feature exclusive selections of art from museums and artists around the world

Box size: 5 x 7.25 x .625 in.
Card size: 5 x 7 in.

Edward Gorey

Artist 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.
