presenting mr gorey…

this creature is from one of my all-time favourite books: The Doubtful Guest

the gashlycrumb tinies

edward gorey was a master of morbidity and grisly humour.  his characters from the ill-fated Gashlycrumb Tinies have become iconic of his work.  as well as his own impressive bibliography of children’s books and (slightly more adult) illustrated tales, gorey is also the pen behind the well-known illustrations for T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.
