Edward Gorey

Edward Gorey

by Edward Gorey




The Doubtful Guest, Amy and Basil Gashlycrumb, Dracula and Lucy, Jumblies, the Great Veiled Bear-this curious cast of characters joins a slew of other peculiar people and beasts in this big beauty of a book. Thirty large-format reproductions display Edward Gorey's signature crosshatched drawings, elegant watercolors, and endless wit-all perfect for framing, or to treasure as a collection.

This is a brand-new publication, not a remake of Gorey Posters (Abrams, 1979), now long out of print. With eighteen images in full color, Edward Gorey: The New Poster Book presents a refreshing and engaging survey of the genius of this beloved artist.

Creator of more than one hundred works, Edward Gorey (1925-2000) was also a playwright, an award-winning set and costume designer, and the creator of the animated introduction to the PBS series Mystery!
