Each year, the Edward Gorey House produces several limited edition prints. The selection for 2015 includes two theater scenes and an alphabet. Each limited edition print is hand numbered and "signed" with an embossed facsimile of Edward Gorey's signature. To purchase prints, visit the Edward Gorey House website.
The first print is Gorey Theatre Dance. A celebratory dance of odd characters on a stage, the image is full of fantastic Gorey details. The image measures 6.5" x 7.75" (paper size is 9" x 11.75") and appears in full color. This image was originally created for Signals catalog.
The second print is theater related image titled The Fatal Intermission. The image measures 10" x 4.75" (paper size is 11.75" x 9"). This full color painting was created by Mr. Gorey in 1990 as the dust jacket design for 13 Plays of Ghosts & the Supernatural, collected and edited by Marvin Kaye.
The third offering, Figbash Alphabet, reunites the viewer with one of Edward Gorey's signature creatures. Figbash dances and contorts himself into each letter of the alphabet. The image measures 9" x 14.5" (paper size is 11" x 17").
All three prints are being offered as a standard printing, a numbered limited edition (200 copies) with an embossed signature, and a lettered limited edition (26 copies) with an embossed signature. Contact The Edward Gorey House to order your prints today!

Masked cat dancing beside pool, a delightful image that is perfect for a hot August day. The visible crease in the image is present because this is scan of a xerox from Mr. Gorey's personal files.
