A Visit to New York

This past weekend, Bill and I went on a whirlwind visit to New York City, which is why my blogging has been slightly erratic this past week or so.

Visiting "The City" is still a wonderful experience, but I will admit that I dearly miss visiting Gotham Book Mart. During our annual visits in the past, there was always something to see and savor at GBM. When our trips coincided with a Gorey show in the GBM Gallery, the thrill of seeing previously unseen treasures from the archives was always a highlight. The shows often featured original illustrations from Gorey's books as well as unusual printed pieces and ephemera.
