Close Encounters Notecards by Edward Gorey

20 assorted cards in box – Pomegranate

Amid elegant furnishings and a sometimes-portentous atmosphere, enigmatic characters wine and dine, conduct tête-à-tête encounters, and dance to the tune of their iconic creator, Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000). His drawings and stories, set in a vaguely Edwardian time frame with a decidedly English overtone, exhibit a special genius for what is left unseen and unwritten. As evident herein, Gorey’s skillful crosshatchery often presents the point just before the crescendo of events and then lets the imagination draw the ominous or hilarious conclusion.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
