This is an excellent overview of Gorey's art, with some real treats for Goreyphiles. The early sketches and the reproductions of his decorated envelopes are particularly awesome. Those who aren't well-versed in Gorey's books might want to hunt down copies of his Amphigories as companions to this text; otherwise, the inclusion of only a few pages from several of his books might be a little frustrating.
