Edward Gorey—Cat Fancy Puzzle, 1,000 Pieces
Edward Gorey (1925–2000) was an American writer and artist noted for his illustrated books. His characteristic pen-and-ink drawings often depict vaguely unsettling narrative scenes in Victorian and Edwardian settings. Gorey wrote and illustrated such popular books as The Doubtful Guest, The Gashlycrumb Tinies, and The Headless Bust. He was also a very successful set and costume designer, earning a Tony Award for his Broadway production of Edward Gorey's Dracula. Animated sequences of his work have introduced the PBS series Mystery! since 1980. Particularly fond of cats, Gorey left the bulk of his estate to a charitable trust benefiting cats and dogs—as well as other species like bats and insects.
