Lazy Blog Post - Edward Gorey




















One of my favorite artists. If you've never read his stuff, Amphigorey is a great place to start.

  1. He was a one-off. I especially like The Gashlycrumb Tinies. "N is for Neville who died of ennui." Genius.

  3. Oddly, I've been planning a post on his tarot-style "Fantod Deck" as an alternate Deck of Many Things for my Dwarf-Land setting. Definitely a fan.

  4. Love the top photo! That's Thomas on the newspaper, Jane on the blanket, & looks like Charles on EG's lap. For more behind-the-scenes, see my new book Edward Gorey Plays Cape Cod: Puppets, People, Places, & Plots (www.Boom-Books.com) -- Carol

  7. That's definitely Gorey's Dracula, although I can't remember if it's from an illustrated edition of the book itself or the concept work he did for a stage production.

  8. Thank you for some other informative blog. Where else could I get that type of information written in such an ideal means? I have a mission that I’m just now working on, and I have been at the look out for such information. gate motor
