Edward Gorey's "The Gashlycrumb Tinies"

"A is for Amy, who fell down the stairs"
"B is for Basil, assaulted by bears"
"C is for Clara, who wasted away"
"D is for Desmond, thrown out of a sleigh"
"E is for Ernest, who choked on a peach"
"F is for Fanny, sucked dry by a leech..."

And on through "Zillah, who drank too much gin." Marvellous - the complete pictures and the text by Edward Gorey (probably without copyright permission, but who knows. Better enjoy it now before it's deleted).

Until I read more about this, I didn't realize that Gorey wasn't British.
