Praise

Praise

"A brilliant draftsman, Mr. Gorey has raised the crosshatch, a timeworn 19th century mannerism, into a timeless visual language….[His works] tickle the funny bone as they raise hair on the back of the neck." —The New York Times

"This delightfully eerie anthology…[is] a great entry into the warped sensibility that animated Gorey’s twisted genius." —Kirkus Reviews
