Most people who know anything about Edward Gorey typically describe him as an illustrator.
However, Gorey has created books that can now be found not only in the humor or cartoon sections of your favorite bookstore, but even in the "true" art section.
Edward Gorey was famous for his experimentation in the creation of books. He created wordless books, teeny-tiny matchbox-sized books, and even pop-up books!
Classifying his own work as "literary nonsense," Gorey stands front and center in the same genre as that occupied by Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear.
Welcome to all those who are already fans of Edward Gorey, and an even bigger welcome to those who are taking their first "journey" into his life and work.
