Amphigorey: The Best of Edward Gorey (#Books, #Horror, #Fantasy, #Art)

amphigorey

Quite well known in the USA and Canada, but less known in the rest of the world, the late, lamented Edward Gorey was an artist, illustrator and poet of the peculiar.  This book is a nice collection of some of Gorey’s best macabre, tragicomic tales- a fantastic mixture of words and pictures.

He was also a bit of an aficionado for an odd little band called the Tiger Lillies with whom he collaborated.  Actually, I’ve seen the Tiger Lillies, wonderful band, but Gorey makes them seem a trifle normal.
