The Doubtful Guest…

February 16, 2011

Last year my sister, Morgan, came upon something very special…if you are familiar with poetry or writing at all, then I am sure you must be familiar with a man named Edward Gorey. And if you aren’t familiar…well, you really should be.

This special something that Morgan came upon was an actual Edward Gorey calendar that held his poem/short story “The Doubtful Guest”. When Morgan started to read the calendar she was laughing so hard, tears were flying everywhere. I have pictures to prove it. Buuuuuut she probably wouldn’t want me to show those….

It wasn’t until just recently I stumbled upon this very special calendar once again and how could I not share? That would almost be a mean joke if I kept the brilliance of Mr. Gorey to myself. So with that said, this is….The Doubtful Guest…

Each illustration is so perfect. I think everything about this is just brilliant. Edward Gorey would be a great next door neighbor.
