’Tis the season to be Gorey. . . . This is Edward St. John Gorey at his festive best. Join him as you sip the flaming punch, sample a cookie, dispose of the fruitcake, and decorate the fireplace.
Gorey (American, 1925–2000) was a brilliant artist and writer, a Harvard graduate, and a respected book designer. His drawings and stories, set in a vaguely Edwardian time frame, exhibit a special genius for what is left unseen and unsaid. Crosshatched characters and quirky narratives keep Gorey devotees in gleeful anticipation of decorous mayhem.
Creator of more than one hundred works—from a wealth of darkly hilarious books to the animated opening sequence of the PBS television series Mystery!—Gorey was a master of the amusing, the strange, and the unexpected. His artworks are collected and treasured throughout the world.
Contains five each of the following holiday cards:
