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.
The Gorey Cards change over the years, but remain among the best cards available with which to send greetings for the holiday season. Hats off to Pomegranate for offering TWO such sets of cards. The on-line transaction was simple, smooth, and efficient. Thank you!
Thanks Michael, we appreciate your loyalty! We're always glad to add more Gorey to our offerings. :)
