Sinopsis:

The World of Edward Gorey is the first major book in the devilishly amusing American artist and writer perhaps best known for his witty opening credits for public television's Mystery! series and for such books as Amphigorey, The Doubtful Guest, and Unstrung Harp. An extensive interview with Ross introduces the reader to Gorey himself, his interests, inspirations and obsessions. A selection of Mystery Guild. 200 illustrations, 24 in color.

Review:

Edward Gorey is an author and an illustrator who has carved a unique niche creating macabre graphic novels that are part satire and part social commentary--comics for adults. Though often relating lurid tales of Victorian crime, Gorey eschews blood and gore in favor of atmosphere and humor. Here the editors have collected a representative sample of his work. Ross, an artist, and Wilkin, an art critic, also provide a useful introductory essay on Gorey's work and an informative interview with him. The book includes a complete bibliography and photographs of Gorey's library and studio.
