Examines dozens of examples of the book art of Edward Gorey, who initially illustrated paperback covers and dust jackets for the likes of Joseph Conrad, Henry James and Charles Dickens, establishing a pen-and-ink hand-lettered style that would challenge prevailing American publishing standards and help define his publisher's visual identity. His prodigious output of hundreds of jackets and covers evidenced his flair for design and his ability to portray the essence of the books that came his way.
