B is for Blog

This one is from The Doubtful Guest

This is from The Gashlycrumb Tinies

All of these images were sourced from various spots on Google. Obviously, I don't own them, so please contact me if there are any problems associated with their use here.

Very recently and quite by accident I have discovered the brilliant work of American illustrator and author Edward Gorey. Last week I found a book of postcards of his drawings in an op-shop for 50 cents. Completely quirky and eccentric to the point of being rather surreal, I absolutely love his drawings. I especially like his use of rather upright and prim looking Victorian people in bizarre situations. And I think I may be in love with the famed Gorey Cat.

What do you think?

As you wrote, Emily - quirky and eccentric. Nice to see them but not something that I would hang on my walls. Probably I would be spooked every time I would pass by. ;)

@ Pina -

Yes, they are on that slightly creepy edge, aren't they! Especially the 'Tinies' pictures.

@ librarygirl -

Yes, I was surprised I hadn't come across him earlier when I saw how much stuff there was on the Net about him.
