'What a great idea!' I thought. And here we are with the first card going out in tomorrow's mail. I decided to send the first postcard to Pamela in CA as I am behind in my correspondence with her.
(Thanks for the suggestion, Julie!)
Set in a vaguely Edwardian time frame with a decidedly English overtone, Gorey's work shows the influence of his love for British literature. Ill-fated children with baleful faces, anthropomorphic creatures of untraceable biological lineage, shadowy adults on the verge of mysterious errands; these are but a few of the intriguing characters who habituate Gorey's world.A nice bonus is that for each postcard that is featured in the calendar, there is a miniature reference to the postcard on the following page, with an image from the card (shown below).
Edward Gorey Postcard Calendar 2011, I've seen them for half off Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Anyone who would like to receive a postcard from this collection, leave a comment with your email and I will see what I can do.
