“The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, by Joan Aiken” (1962, 2nd edition, Edward Gorey cover), first book in the Dickensian alternate history adventure-fantasy series. The first three are classic, the series gets more fantastic, dark, and weird with “The Stolen Lake” recasting the Arthurian legend in South America, and the truly psychedelic follow-up “The Cuckoo Tree.” Posted for @kingdomk8 #bookcover#illustration#edwardgorey#yalit#oldbooks#bookaddict
One of my favorite quotes from Edward Gorey is that once you reach a certain number of cats, I believe it was five, that they lose their individual personalities and begin acting as a single unit =^-^=

I redrew a lifesize version of Edward Gorey's "The Doubtful Guest" in ink. Edward Gorey has been one of my favorite artists/authors since I was a little kid and my dad would give me his books to read. They were the kind of books I'd look at over and over again. Not sure what I'm going to do with it now but I'll figure something out. (And finish cutting out his scarf edges) #EdwardGorey#TheDoubtfulGuest#art#ink

A writer of my favorite picture book. I feel beauty among the anxieties scattered in the story.
