Shout Out: Edward Gorey

   Here's a shout out to one of my favorite illustrators/story writers Edward Gorey. Here is the cover of my favorite story of his, The Hapless Child. I scanned it in from the book Amiphigorey; you can buy it here.
   My first introduction to Edward Gorey's gothic style was The Gashlycrumb Tinies. While that books was my first love, I was easily swept away by The Hapless Child. Edward Gorey seems to capture a certain darkness in all of us. And, I have to say, I quite like that someone has exposed us all.
