Edward Gorey Address Book

Set in a vaguely Edwardian time, with a decidedly English overtone, Gorey's work reveals the influence of his love for British literature. Presented here, from assorted Gorey works, are the images and droll descriptions of ill-fated children with baleful faces, anthropomorphic creatures of untraceable biological lineage, and shadowy adults with masklike faces, forever on the verge of mysterious errands.
