$30.00

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 Cultural Slag, Gorey pairs his illustrations with the punny poems of Felicia Lamport. She was a longtime contributor to the Boston Globe and a socialite well-known by artists of the period. She published five books of poetry, three of which Gorey illustrated. Her puns and humorous rhymes proved a perfect match for Gorey’s artistic style, making their collaborations a highspot among Gorey’s many volumes.
