Amphigorey Again

Framhli­ kßpu
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2006 - 260 sÝ­ur
This collection displays in glorious abundance the offbeat characters and droll humor of Edward Gorey. Figbash is acrobatic, topiaries are tragic, hippopotami are admonitory, and galoshes are remorseful in this celebration of a unique talent that never fails to delight, amuse, and confound. Amphigorey Again contains previously uncollected work and two unpublished stories--"The Izzard Book," a quirky riff on the letter Z , and "La Malle Saignante," a bilingual homage to early French silent serial movies. Rough sketches and unfinished panels show an ironic and singular mind at work.

He was also a very successful set and costume designer, earning a Tony Award for his Broadway production of Edward Gorey's Dracula.
