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.

Learn more about the man behind the Doubtful Guest, The Gashlycrumb Tinies, and much more.
