Edward Gorey Bonanza Part 5

The conclusion is here! These are the books by Edward Gorey (some first published under a pseudonymous anagram like Ogdred Weary, Regera Dowdy, E. G. Deadworry or D. Awdrey-Gore) with his own artwork on the covers and throughout.

Then there's The Dwindling Party, his pop-up book:

If you want to read more Gorey, almost all of his work has been collected in the four Amphigorey compendiums: Amphigorey, Amphigorey Too, Amphigorey Again and Amphigorey Also.

This is fantastic! I've been a fan of Gorey for years but had no idea how many books he'd illustrated until seeing this. Many thanks.

My pleasure--and these 96 (!) covers are just a sampling of his work.
