The perfectly creepy, amusing book that inspired Tim Burton, Neil Gaiman and Guillermo Del Toro.
A is for Amy who fell down the stairs
B is for Basil assaulted by bears
C is for Clara who wasted away…
… and so it goes on, an A to Z of poor little orphans and their untimely ends. (Right up to the unfortunate Zilla, who simply drank too much gin.)
This collector’s edition of Edward Gorey’s pocket-sized masterpiece comes in a special slipcase with ribbon.
“Gorey was the master of the macabre and The Gashlycrumb Tinies was his masterpiece: a doomladen abecedary of infant disaster and sudden awful endings. For years I had it on my wall as a poster. Now I will have a beautiful object to love.” – Neil Gaiman,
“Edward Gorey. American. A singularity. Prose & images, redolent of Victorian dread and beauty. Influenced Tim Burton.” – Guillermo Del Toro,
