Gorey Creatures: A Book of Postcards, by Edward Gorey. 30
Edward Gorey (1925–2000), much like an eccentric scientist in a gothic legend, brought to life from the laboratory of his mind altogether new and sometimes playfully sinister creations. Amazing and wonderful in their sardonic merriment, his drawings and stories have a special genius that resides in the effect of what is left unseen and unwritten. Following the literary tradition of the nonsense verse and somewhat surreal narratives of Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear, Gorey’s illustrated texts often guide the reader to the point just before the crescendo of events and then let the imagination draw the ominous or hilarious conclusions.

Pomegranate’s books of postcards contain up to thirty top-quality reproductions bound together in a handy, artful collection. Easy to remove and produced on heavy card stock, these stunning postcards are a delight to the sender and receiver. Postcards are oversized. 6.5" X 4.75" each.
