Amphigorey: Fifteen Books

Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary

The title of this deliciously creepy collection of,Goreys work stems from the word amphigory,meaning a nonsense verse or composition. As,always, Goreys painstakingly cross- hatched pen,and ink drawings are perfectly suited to his,oddball verse and prose. Many of Goreys tales,involve untimely deaths and dreadful mishaps, but,much like tragic Irish ballads with their perky,rhythms and melodies, they come off as strangely,lighthearted. An eccentric, funny book for either,the uninitiated or diehard Gorey fans.
