Description
The delightful tales and theatrical drawings of Edward Gorey (American, 19252000) reflect a special kind of genius for what is left unwritten and unseen. In Elegant Enigmas: The Art of Edward Gorey, more than 175 reproductions include samples from Goreys books, illustrations produced for other writers, theatrical sets and costume designs, and a wealth of individual pieces, many never before published. Sketches, typewritten manuscripts, doodles, and musings join the generous selection of finished works.
