Edward Gorey was an illustrator and writer with a macabre style. His pen and ink drawings are eerie yet charming. His prose is light yet haunting. Of the many notable illustrators of the 20th century, none are more appealing for their consistently spooky work. It is a style that remains appreciated with all ages, making Gorey one of the most popular illustrators to this day. In The Gashlycrumb Tinies, Gorey presents 26 pen and ink drawings–one for every letter in the alphabet. The illustrations are paired with alliterative lines, creating a perturbing alphabet book unlike any other. With lines like “E is for Ernest who choked on a peach” or “V is for Victor squashed under a train”, Gorey’s Gashlycrumb Tinies is a delightful and dark creation of children’s literature and illustration.

This 1991 edition of Gashlycrumb Tinies is signed by Edward Gorey on a bookplate. Fine in the original boards. Text block fine. Without a dust jacket, as issued.

A fine signed volume of one of Gorey’s best works.
