Edward Gorey’s Never-Before-Seen Letters and Illustrated Envelopes

When artist Edward Gorey sent mail to friends, he would address the envelope in a rather distinctive way.

It's a bit of a tradition in the children's book industry that illustrators often send in post to their publishers with a little something drawn on the front of the envelopes.

The Envelope Please: Edward Gorey, master of the mischievously macabre, shared a decades-long friendship and correspondence with Peter Neumeyer, a writer and professor whose childrens’ books he illustrated. Luckily for us they communicated via snail mail. Gorey’s fantastical envelopes, along with sketches, illustrations, and manuscripts, are reproduced in Floating Worlds, via Pomegranate Books. ©The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust, courtesy Pomegranate (pomegranate.com)
