Edward Gorey is the master of all things dark and wonderful. Gorey wrote and illustrated over 100 books and he became king of macabre. His books were beautiful and sometimes oddly touching. He is most known for The Adams Family which has been remade again and again as a TV series and as several movies. My favorite of his books was The Gashleycrumb Tinies. For years, I sent out Edward Gorey Christmas cards and as I mailed my cards yesterday I had to admit I miss my dark Christmas theme. I did not use my Gorey cards this year because I ran out of time and didn’t plan far enough in advance. I know, big surprise. But I thought in lieu of my cards, I would do a post on some of the most marvelous and ghostly Christmas cards ever made. Gorey did numerous Christmas cards and Christmas illustrations in his career. These are only a few, but they are all marvelous.
