First edition thus, first impressions of these luxury limited edition Penguin Classics novels. The full set of six luxury bindings designed for Penguin by Bill Amberg. 1,000 copies of each were produced. The ISBN number given is for Breakfast at Tiffany's; the other volumes have separate ISBN numbers. Soft bound in vegetable tanned buffalo calf, with matching hand-tied leather tag-style bookmark bearing the name and author of the book. The skins used in the binding of these Bill Amberg editions were taken from 'fallen animals' - i.e. they died from natural causes - and were sourced from India's premium calf tannery. Made using traditional ecological methods, where the water used is recycled after filtering through reed beds. This creates leather that improves with every use, the grain and sheen brightening continually over time. Presented wrapped in Penguin / Bill Amberg tissue in a sturdy blond card box. Paper wrap-around titles slip over the box. A full set of these superb collector's editions. The only visible flaw is in the form of some small indentations to the slipcase wraparound of The Big Sleep. All volumes are still shrinkwrapped and as new. All bear the original Penguin barcodes and price labels on the shrinkwrap. The presentation boxes are in excellent FINE condition. For sale as a set only. Book dimensions are 21.5cm x 14cm [boxes 23.4 cm x 16.3cm]. DELIVERY: No extra charges for sending within the UK MAINLAND. An extra fee may be necessary for UK islands and highlands, including N.

21 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 
Price: 25.00 GBP
