  • Seventeen Cats on the Front Steps of 82 Maple Street No two cats stand, sit, stretch, or snooze quite the same way. A dignified calico tucks her paws neatly under her, while an adolescent tabby lolls like a possum, with feet in the air. The relaxed residents of 82 Maple Street evidence the lifelong love and attention Edward Gorey afforded his feline friends. Meet them all in this 300-piece jigsaw 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.

      Posted by W.D. Veazey on Sep 4th 2020

      Excellent quality, whimsical subject, technically challenging enough to enjoy, absolutely loved by the "cat lady" who received it as a "thank you" gift. Most highly recommended
