Get Gorey-er

gorey.jpgCan't get enough of the strange and macabre illustrations of Chicago native Edward Gorey? Author and Gorey-collaborator Peter F. Neumeyer is publishing a book of his correspondence with the artist. Floating Worlds: The Letters of Edward Gorey and Peter F. Neumeyer is a collection of typewritten letters, illustrated envelopes, postcards, and illustrations exchanged between the two. The book also serves as a memoir, focusing on the friendship that developed between the two artists. Check out some of the illustrations here.
