Gorey Posters.

Written and illustrated by Edward Gorey.

Published by Harry N. Abrams Inc, New York, in 1979.

First Edition 🌈

Binding: Paperback

Format: Large-format (11 x 16 inches) 

Condition: This amazing book is in good condition for its age. There is some scratching to cover and rubbing to cover edges, as we have shown in the first pic. But the spine is still tight, and every original 1979 poster inside is intact and unmarked (with each one being something of value in its own right). 

Child prodigy. Toy collector. Doll maker. Obsessive sewer. Story teller. Brilliantly macabre writer and illustrator. Poet. Playwright. Fur coat wearer. Puppeteer. The Granddaddy of Goth….

Edward Gorey was a man of many talents. A few of which will leap out at you from this amazing and highly collectible 1979 Edward Gorey poster book.
Containing an interview with Gorey and 28 full-page posters, with details printed on the facing page, this book is a definite must-have for any Goreyphiles or lover of the gothic genre. Gorey’s unmistakable pen-and-ink drawings are influenced by Victorian and Edwardian settings, and have earned him a cult following. 
 
Think black humour, eerie atmosphere, and darkly comic words and drawings that border on absurdism.
