AMPHIGOREY FIFTEEN BOOKS BY EDWARD GOREY *FIRST EDITION*1972* seventh impression


Well, if you don't know who Edward Gorey is... Think surrealist comic book - surrealist like advertising art is surrealist: elegant models dancing with elephants, large everday objects falling on people and dogs doing clever implausible things. The drawings are nicely done pen and ink illustrations. They are atmospheric above all else and have a distinctive flavor. The captions are matched to the drawings and may or may not relate directly to the scene shown. Together they build pretty little plots - surreal and without loose ends. Amphigorey is a bound collection of these short stories by Edward Gorey. I recommend Edward Gorey to all. The drawings are excellent at creating an atmosphere and the stories are clever. a1 7/14
