Selections from "Gashlycrumb Tinies"


I won't give you a link for the source of this abecedary, but rather encourage you to patronize your local bookstore or your local library.  Published as part of the "Amphigorey" collection, by Edward Gorey.

  3. "When in doubt, twirl!" said Gorey. Also recommend Ascending Peculiarity: Edward Gorey on Edward Gorey for words from the master, edited by Karen Wilkin.

  4. I've actually seen a poster with all of those one there. I always wondered where they came from.

    And now I know, thank you.
