Edward Gorey is an odd inclusion in the Author Appreciation series as ‘author’ is, in many ways, his least significant role. Primarily known as an artist - and largely remembered for his charmingly gloomy monochromatic pen & ink style - Gorey was also an art director, designer, author, playwright, and man of a thousand eccentric hats.
He’s immensely important as an influence - artistic and industry - and we’ll talk about that. But Gorey’s work is simply wonderful in its own right, and well worth reading for anyone that appreciates joy, schadenfreude, dark humor, wordplay and ingenuity.
