’Tis the season to be Gorey. . . . This is Edward St. John Gorey at his festive best. Join him as you sip the flaming punch, sample a cookie, dispose of the fruitcake, and decorate the fireplace.
The prolific artist and author Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000) created more than one hundred works, including a wealth of droll, darkly humorous books that brought to the world a new genre in graphic storytelling: the sprightly disturbing. His drawings and stories, set in a vaguely Edwardian time frame, exhibit a special genius for what is left unseen and unsaid. Crosshatched characters and quirky narratives keep Gorey devotees in gleeful anticipation of decorous mayhem.
