really liked it
bookshelves: 2010, non-fiction

Delightful catalog book that accompanied the traveling exhibition of Gorey's work. It gives a lot of insight into what inspired him and how he viewed his drawings and stories. The art included pages from many stories I'm already familiar with, and others I've had yet to read.

Patrick they have postcards of him at dick blick art stores if youre looking to decorate your fridge.

Brooke Ooh, that is good to know. I have a planner from several years ago that has two of his stories in it, I couldn't bring myself to throw it out at the end of the year and figured I'd salvage some of the illustrated panels for decorating someday, but postcards would be easier...
