Celebrate the season, Gorey-style, with this holiday card assortment. Edward St. John 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, feature crosshatched characters and quirky narratives, keeping 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.
