Edward Gorey Dragon and Man Exchange Gifts Holiday Cards
'Tis the season to be thoughtful and loyal, generous and kind: everything this drawing suggests. We’ve been waiting for more than a year for these cards to become available, and here they are at last.
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.
