I’m wondering if we’re about to see another Edward Gorey resurgence, something that seems to come along every ten years or so.

He published small illustrated books beginning in the 50s; at the time (pre-graphic novels), they looked like children’s books. ┬áReally macabre children’s books.

There’s an exhibit I read about on this blog post, which included the illustration above, from his alphabet, The Gashlycrumb Tinies, which begins “A is for Amy who fell down the stairs.” ┬áThe whole thing is here.
