The Black Doll

The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust has come out with a new Edward Gorey stuffed toy - The Black Doll. These wonderful felt dolls come in a fully illustrated box and are limited to 2000 pieces. Dolls can be acquired through the Edward Gorey House online store (www.edwardgoreyhouse.org).

The dolls (and box) are quite a bit larger than I expected them to be - each doll is a full 14" in length. Created in black felt and stuffed with a plush fiberfill, they can be bent to sit on a book shelf or amongst a collection of other Gorey dolls. I am showing the doll next to a first edition copy of The Black Doll to give a sense of scale.

I purchased one of these, too, and love it! Not sure what I like best, though - the doll or the box. The box is much better than I ever expected. It's wonderful!
