The Improvable Landscape

Published by The Albondocani Press, New York as a signed limited edition in 1986, The Improvable Landscape is a book by Edward Gorey which I particularly enjoy. The landscape drawings are beautifully rendered, and the captions are a delight. One phrase in particular, "Worth paying to see", has become a standard expression at my home.

The Improvable Landscape was published in an edition of 300 numbered 26 lettered (A to Z) copies. I am showing copies #120/300 and T/26 below, along with the announcement card for this publication.
