This is a darker entry and it’s a children’s book. I was looking up artist in the middle of the night some time back and came across Gorey. I love his style and he’s become one of my favorite artists. I had seen little gifs of his work that had come alive on the internet, but none of them credited the artist. It was after I found out about Gorey that I connected the dots. The Gashlycrumb Tinies is a book he illustrated about the…well the journey each child had taken.
A new, small-format edition of one of Edward Gorey’s “dark masterpieces of surreal morality” (Vanity Fair): a witty, disquieting journey through the alphabet.
