Happy Birthday Edward Gorey!

Today is Edward Gorey's Birthday. He has always been one of my favorite illustrators.
I have all of his books and some by other authors that he had illustrated.
NPR recently did an interview with Alexander Theroux about his friendship with Edward. Mr. Theroux had written a book after Edward's death and it is being re-issued.
And there is a documentary coming out soon by Mooncusser Films.

Visit Chris Seufert's flickr page where I got these photos. I love this one with the family resting. And all of the books!
This is what his house looked like before they turned it into a museum.....The Edward Gorey House....just off route 6a in Yarmouthport. Go to their website for more info and visit their shop. Thanks for looking! :):)

I like his stories, but don't you think they're a bit Gorey?

Oh, and Happy Presidents Pets Day -the day after Presidents Day, as I like to call it. In the US, we love our presidents..... pets. See my blog if you’re in the mood for a good ol' irreverent howl.
