A story without words, from 1963, this Edward Gorey classic unfolds in 31 oblique and mysterious drawings that carry us from one room to the next via the murky halls of the West Wing. Peeling wallpaper sags to the floor; odd characters appear, unbidden; a candle scatters light into the gloom, held by invisible hands. The viewer is left to wonder, what is it that haunts this edifice? And who left that boulder sitting on the table? First released as part of The Vinegar Works: Three Volumes of Moral Instruction (which included The Gashlycrumb Tinies and The Insect God), this cautionary tale is available at last on its own.
