Review:

Edward Gorey is an author and an illustrator who has carved a unique niche creating macabre graphic novels that are part satire and part social commentary--comics for adults. Though often relating lurid tales of Victorian crime, Gorey eschews blood and gore in favor of atmosphere and humor. Here the editors have collected a representative sample of his work. Ross, an artist, and Wilkin, an art critic, also provide a useful introductory essay on Gorey's work and an informative interview with him. The book includes a complete bibliography and photographs of Gorey's library and studio.

From the Publisher:

"The book presents almost enough Gorey drawings along with its sound text. There can never be quite enough Gorey drawings."-The Atlantic Monthly

"A superb sampling of classic stories, visual essays, covers, posters and sketches."-Steven Heller, The New York Times Book Review

"This is a glorious collection of Goreyana, complemented by an interview by painter and photographer Ross with the artist himself and commentary on his work by art critic Wilkin."-Kirkus Reviews
