The Eerie Glory of Edward Gorey
American illustrator Edward Gorey (1925-2000) was an unusual man – some might even say peculiar. A lover of cats and books, Gorey was Harvard-educated, largely asexual, fascinated by old-fashioned objects and sentiments, and highly creative.
You may be familiar with his Gashlycrumb Tinies – a sinister alphabet rhyme of terrible fates befalling children, but that’s just a drop in the bucket of the creepy and macabre, the eccentric and eclectic, the weird and wonderful world of Edward Gorey.
