Delight in the spooky yet whimsical style of Edward Gorey with this 1,000-piece puzzle. Before his now iconic books drew critical acclaim and a dedicated following, Gorey designed book covers in the crowded single room of Doubleday Anchor’s art department. Not yet 30 and recently graduated from Harvard, Gorey initially illustrated paperback covers and dust jackets for the likes of Joseph Conrad, Henry James, and Charles Dickens, establishing a pen-and-ink, hand-lettered style with a touch of gothic absurdity. Gorey’s prodigious output of hundreds of dust jackets and paperback covers evidences his distinctive flair for design.
