Edward Gorey Bonanza Part 2

More Gorey! This time, some of the (many) anthologies he designed covers for. It should come as no surprise that, given his penchant for ruined houses, mortally injured children, strange insect gods and terrible mysterious things, Gorey did a lot of covers for ghost story collections. He even edited one himself, The Haunted looking Glass, still available from NYRB Classics...

Here are some others.

Next time, even more Gorey: a selection of his covers for children's books.
