  • Untitled, 1965 All of Edward Gorey's characters inhabit a uniquely enigmatic world, where situations and relationships are alluded to but usually not explained. Take this group: the bird in the lower left holds a banner in its beak, declaring “An Exhibition.” One wonders: have they all arrived to see a show, or are they the show? And what’s with the guy floating above in his nightgown, let alone the masked man on the red bicycle? On the far right—that must be Gorey himself, topped with a bat. Study all of these weird and wonderful characters as you piece together this 1,000-piece puzzle.

    Artist and author Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000) is beloved for the boundless imagination and sharp humor exhibited in his more than 100 published works. Gorey was also a set and costume designer for innumerable theater productions, including a staging of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, for which he won a Tony. He had a profound affection for literature, film, ballet, and animals. Cats and other odd creatures appear in many of his crosshatched illustrations. His humorously unsettling drawings of vaguely Victorian innocents facing unfortunate ends became familiar to a wide audience after appearing in the opening credits of the PBS television series Mystery! Gorey’s Cape Cod home, a veritable cabinet of curiosities, is now a museum celebrating his life and work.

    Pomegranate is proud to produce jigsaw puzzles with thoughtfully conceived, engagingly intricate, and aesthetically appealing images on a solid interlocking format. The sturdy construction combined with the wide image selection and vibrant color reproduction will delight everyone from experts to first-time puzzlers.
