Overview

This collection displays in glorious abundance the offbeat characters and droll humor of Edward Gorey. Figbash is acrobatic, topiaries are tragic, hippopotami are admonitory, and galoshes are remorseful in this celebration of a unique talent that never fails to delight, amuse, and confound.
 
Amphigorey Again contains previously uncollected work and two unpublished stories—"The Izzard Book," a quirky riff on the letter Z , and "La Malle Saignante," a bilingual homage to early French silent serial movies. Rough sketches and unfinished panels show an ironic and singular mind at work.

A brilliant and twisted artist used to many a commercial purpose surprisingly enough--Gorey is one of my favorites and you'd be surprised how much influence he has had on pop culture (or maybe you wouldn't) Beautiful, creepy, macabre, commentworthy at the very least.
