Gorey treasures

Pomegranate Books has published a few older Gorey greats that I've been feasting on all day today. They look fantastic, too.You could go for the Amphigorey if you're in a pinch, but it's like downloading a band's entire musical anthology. It's just not so special, somehow.

Gorey died in 2000, having written and illustrated over a hundred books (imagine how many little lines that is). I made the mistake of thinking he was European all my life. Actually, he's American as apple pie, born in Chicago. He just likes to poke fun at the Euro-aristocrats.
