The Gashlycrumb Tinies. Published in 1963 as part of The Vinegar Works, the Tinies have come to be regarded as Mr. Gorey's masterpiece creation. The Edward Gorey House has showcased the original artwork in a yearlong exhibition that closes on the 29th December.
As this milestone anniversary year winds to a close, The Edward Gorey House has provided a perfect way to cherish the Tinies for years to come. A limited portfolio edition has just been issued which includes 27 prints (a print of each letter plus the cover art). The portfolio edition is strictly limited to one hundred numbered sets
and twenty-six lettered sets.
Images are printed at their original size of 5" x 6" on 8" x 10" art
paper. Housed in an attractive portfolio are all the prints plus an
additional celebratory title-card and a colophon card giving the details
about this unique edition.
The new celebratory title-cards and the colophon cards are
blind-embossed with Gorey’s signature. In addition, each item within the
set will be marked with the set’s identifying number or letter.
The 26 lettered sets include as a bonus a plate of the rejected “F
is for Fanny” image (“rejected” by Edward himself who chose to re-work
it for the final book). This unused version is currently on view as part
of the 2013 exhibit and is being reproduced separately for the
