EDWARD GOREY: SERIOUS LIFE: A CRUISE SMALL BOXED NOTECARDS

With his masterful pen-and-ink drawings and characteristic droll humor, Edward Gorey (American, 1925-2000) won critical acclaim and an avid worldwide following. During his prolific career, Gorey illustrated more than one hundred works and created prize-winning set and costume designs for Broadway shows.

His delightful tales and enigmatic drawings reflect a special kind of genius for what is left unwritten and unseen. One wonders what delicious chaos lurks beneath the off-kilter deck of "Serious Life: A Cruise," an illustrated short story published in the New Yorker.
