22 Gorey's Worlds
Monroe, Erin ; with contributions by Robert Greskovic, Arnold Arluke, and Kevin Shortsleeve Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, in assoc. with Princeton University Press 2018 069117704X / 9780691177045 Hardcover New No Jacket Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
Brand new hardback. An exploration of the artistic and cultural influences that shaped writer and illustrator Edward Gorey (1925-2000). Beloved for his droll, surreal, and slightly sinister drawings. While he is perhaps best known for his fanciful, macabre books, such as The Doubtful Guest and The Gashlycrumb Tinies, his instantly recognizable imagery can be seen everywhere from the New Yorker to the opening title sequence of the television series Mystery! (USA). Gorey's Worlds delves into the numerous and surprising cultural and artistic sources that influenced his unique visual language. Gorey was an inveterate collector. A variety of objects shaped his artistic mindset, from works of popular culture to the more than twenty-six thousand books he owned and the art pieces in his vast collection. This collection, which Gorey left to the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art upon his death, is diverse in style, subject, and media, and includes prints by Eug ne Delacroix, Charles Meryon, Edvard Munch, and Odilon Redon; photographs by Eug ne Atget; and drawings by Balthus, Pierre Bonnard, Charles Burchfield, Bill Traylor, and douard Vuillard. As this book shows, these artistic pieces present a visual riddle, as the connections between them, to each other and to Gorey's works, are significant and enigmatic. RRP 27.00. pp. 150. 24.2cm. 309095
