Edward Gorey His Book Cover Art & Design is the latest in the long line of books about Edward Gorey and his work. Published by Pomegranate, this handsome 131 page hardcover volume features a large color photograph on almost every page. The covers featured in this volume concentrate on Mr. Gorey's early years, as does the lengthy and informative essay by Steven Heller. A sampling of covers created after 1970 are included, but the focus of this volume is on Mr. Gorey's early work.
