The Betrayed Confidence Revisited, an art book reproducing ten series of postcards by Edward Gorey / ISBN 9780764968020 / 104-page hardcover, 7.7 x 11.2 inches, from Pomegranate
Edward Gorey (1925-2000) was a prolific artist and author, illustrating more than one hundred published works of his own as well as those of other writers. His erudite wit shines in every story and couplet he published. But as a letter writer, with few exceptions, he engaged in only cursory communication. Perhaps this is why he was such a fan of postcards. Featuring Edward Gorey's ever-popular dark humor, The Betrayed Confidence Revisited offers ten of the artist's postcard series, including Neglected Murderesses, as well as his annual creations promoting National Post Card Week. His two Q.R.V. sets are here, along with Whatever Next?, Alms for Oblivion, Sc nes de Ballet, the Dogear Wryde Interpretive Series (reproduced in full color), Menaced Objects, and Trag dies Topiares.
