CURATE // edward gorey

brainpickings has this great article on a book of letters from edward gorey, famed illustrator, and Peter F. Neumeyer, acclaimed author and editor. gorey’s style is quite recognizable, and has “influenced generations of creators, from Nine Inch Nails to Tim Burton.” one of william’s favorites, gorey created ornate amazing illustrated envelopes and postcards, and they’re here in Floating Worlds: The Letters of Edward Gorey and Peter F. Neumeyer.

i’m a huge fan of snail mail as-is, but to see such beautifully adorned documents that have been sent back and forth is pretty inspiring! can’t wait to read the whole book. i think it might be nice for william to read, too, on his journey towards writing and illustrating his own series of children’s books!

now. if only i could get my holiday cards out…
