Edward Gorey Postcard #4

The Edward Gorey postcard theme has encouraged me to learn more about Mr. Gorey and become more of a fan of his. In Feb I had heard it was his birthday (Feb 22) as there were a few blogs mentioning this. Here is one and another and another.
One of the blogs mentioned his home in the Cape Cod area is now a museum, so naturally, I have added this to my list of places to visit. I love literary themed travel and have been busy planning a trip to New England later this year. (If you also like literary themed travel, check out the blog Literary Traveler.)

This 4th postcard is of Mr. Earbrass, a novelist '...studying a game left unfinished.' I think this card needs to go to a dog loving accountant in Florida who is bogged down during the busy tax season. This woman is also the one who suggested that I include in my blogs something about each of the cards that I send. Thanks, Julie!
If you are an Edward Gorey fan you can also find him on Facebook and Twitter.
