Edward Gorey Card - I hope you will not make a fuss


"I hope you will not make a fuss

About the card you're getting thus."

A disgruntled looking gentleman in an oversized cable-knit sweater sits atop a gigantic rock, arms crossed. Delight your friends and family with the quirky and fantastical art and humour of Edward Gorey by sending one of these curious notecards.

Edward Gorey (1925 - 2000) was an American writer and artist noted for his illustrated books. His consummate wit and eerie style have brought him worldwide acclaim. His signature pen-and-ink drawings often depict vaguely unsettling narrative scenes in Victorian and Edwardian settings and show the influence of his love for British literature. From ill-fated children with baleful faces and anthropomorphic creatures of untraceable biological lineage to shadowy, haunted adults, forever on the verge of mysterious errands, haunting imagery comes alive in Gorey’s world.
