New Prints

Each year, The Edward Gorey House creates several new limited edition prints featuring Edward Gorey artwork. Each image is created directly from the original artwork and is beautifully printed. All prints are available in three formats: unsigned; 200 numbered with embossed signature; 26 lettered with embossed signature.

The numbered and lettered prints are sure to be highly sought after in years to come because of their small limitations and beautiful printing. I often get fans of this blog asking me where the "good buys" are...THIS IS IT!! These prints are my pick as a great piece of Gorey art at a fantastic price, and I have already added all three to my art collection. Be sure to check out the prints from previous years which are still available as well.

For 2010, the three selections include old favorites and a previously unseen image:

Innocence from The Broken Spoke - Paper: 9.5" x 11.5", Image: 5-5/8" x 8-15/16". One of Mr. Gorey's most famous images. Classic.

Wadreo Dyrge Addresses the Suspects from The Awdrey Gore Legacy (see bottom of post) - Paper: 8" x 12", Image: 6" x 10". This image looks like Edward Gorey himself has banded together his cast of characters for a stern chat.

Some Things are Scary (see top of posting) - Paper: 9.5" x 11.5", Image: 6" x 8-1/8". A previously unpublished color piece that is a real delight. This image was created as a cover for a book that was never published which Mr. Gorey was commissioned to illustrate. It would have been fun to know what other "scary" illustrations were supposed to be created!
