Amphigorey Too and Amiphigorey Again - Edward Gorey


The main thing I’m taking away from this trio of books (see here for the other) is that Edward Gorey thought a lot about the alphabet.    There are so many variations of alphabet lists in these books.    He’s also morbid.     Which I already knew, but got extra confirmation reading these.  

I appreciate that these were collected together because they’re probably harder to get otherwise, but I can see where some of these would have worked better as stand alone vignettes.    To a degree, his work should be digested in small pieces.
