Edward Gorey Close Encounters Notecards

  • $19.95


Twenty assorted 5 x 7 inch blank notecards (5 each of 4 designs) with envelopes in a decorative box.

The darkly romantic drawings in this notecard set make perfectly unconventional Valentines. Set against black and white images, a coupe of Champagne glimmers, a glass of red wine glows like a ruby, the moon shimmers, and a bouquet of red roses says “I love you”—maybe. Anyone enthralled with Edward Gorey’s drawings of elegant furnishings and a sometimes-portentous atmosphere will be thrilled by his enigmatic characters and tête-à-tête encounters, and dance to the tune of their iconic creator.

Edward Gorey’s enormous talent extended to theatrical arts as well. He was a playwright and an accomplished set and costume designer—with his Broadway revival of Dracula winning two Tony Awards—and a creator of the legendary animated credits for the PBS series Mystery!
