Happy Birthday Edward Gorey

Edward St. John Gorey (ca. February 22, 1925 – April 15, 2000) was an American writer and artist noted for his macabre illustrated books.

Gorey's illustrated (and sometimes wordless) books, with their vaguely ominous air and ostensibly Victorian and Edwardian settings, have long had a cult following.

I adore anything Gorey!

Who doesn't love the crumbtinies?

Thank you  Edward Gorey, and Happy Birthday!
