This volume presents the work of Edward Gorey, the American artist and writer perhaps best known for his witty opening credits for PBS's "Myster!" series and for such books as "Amphigorey", "The Doubtful Guest" and "The Unstrung Heart". Gorey, who died in 2000 at the age of 75 had a loyal following for many books - cherished for their dark humour, hand-lettered tests and spooky pen-and-ink drawings of an Edwardian world. In this volume an informative interview with Clifford Ross, an artist and a long-time friend of Gorey, introduces the reader to Gorey himself. Art critic Karen Wilkin discusses Gorey's style and sets it in the context of narrative art and popular culture.
