Comments

"The World of Edward Gorey introduces readers to Gorey himself by way of an interview with artist Clifford Ross. Here we learn about Gorey's unusually agile mind, his immense and diverse interests, and his deep knowledge of art. From there, art critic Karen Wilkin takes us on a voyage through Gorey's world, analyzing the evolution and sources of the artist's style and situating it within a tradition of narrative art, of high and popular culture. Both important and lesser-known works are discussed, amplified with 200 illustrations made by Gorey" (from front flap). Toledano p.164.
