Happy Birthday, Edward Gorey

Edward Gorey was born 88 years ago today and here is just one of the ways he enriched the world before leaving it.

Gorey illustrated something like a hundred books (which means there is always something new to discover as I recently found with his Treehorn trilogy).

This one, though, is clearly meant *just* for me.



Read more about him here and consider how wonderful it would have been to see how he would have illustrated Neil Gaiman's Coraline.  Then go and visit the Gorey Store where you can buy everything from soap to to iPhone cases to jewellry.
