With a box of these notecards on hand, you’ll always be able to send a sweet birthday greeting. From the bow on the cook's apron to the smile on the clock, every detail comes together happily in this celebratory greeting card. Inside greeting: Happy Birthday!Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000) was an artist, writer, and book designer. His drawings and stories, set in a vaguely Edwardian time frame, exhibit a special genius for what is left unseen and unsaid. Crosshatched characters and quirky narratives keep Gorey devotees in gleeful anticipation of decorous mayhem.
The creator of more than one hundred works—from a wealth of darkly hilarious books to the animated opening sequence of the PBS television series Mystery!—Gorey was a master of the amusing, the strange, and the unexpected. His artworks are collected and treasured throughout the world.
