While by no means an exhaustive collection of Gorey's works, this collection includes lots of information about Gorey himself and the many collaborators with whom he worked. The art included here is based around an exhibition of the same title which was shown at the Brandywine River Museum. Wilkin is a Gorey scholar and writes about many facets of Gorey as a person, including his influences, his attitudes, and his personality. Having been a fan of his work since I was a child, this glimpse into what he was like was quite interesting.
