About this title

Synopsis:

Edward Gorey is famed for his pen-and-ink drawings and dark humor, and this overview provides examples of his art, insights into his work by an artist and longtime friend, and critical analysis by an art reviewer. Mystery Guild & Science Fiction Bk Club.

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.
