EDWARD GOREY: NEGLECTED MURDERESSES BOXED NOTECARDS

Presented with tongue firmly in cheek, Neglected Murderesses features delightfully wicked specimens of "the fairer sex" whose homicidal acts have faded into obscurity, including bowler-turned-basher Miss Q. P. Urkheimer and crochet-hook skewerer Mrs. Daisy Sallow.

If not for the sleuthing of Edward Gorey (American, 1925-2000), whose fearless rehabilitation of better-known murders such as Dracula, the Wuggly Ump, and the malfeasants presented in PBS's Mystery! earned the admiration of countless law-abiding citizens, we might have gone to our graves without a proper appreciation of the important part women have played in the history of homicide.

20 notecards, 5 each of 4 images.
