Before he became known as a purveyor of gothic cobwebbery, Edward Gorey was a young man in a publisher's art department, creating intensely psychological book covers and dust jackets with a distinctive hand-lettered style. H.G. Wells, Gladys Mitchell, Georges Simenon, T.S. Eliot, Sarah Caudwell, Edmund Wilson, Franz Kafka, Joseph Conrad, and W.B. Yeats all appear in this collage of 22 covers created by Gorey, revealing his extraordinary ability to capture the essences of these works, as well as offering an entertaining challenge for puzzlers. The finished jigsaw measures 20 × 27 inches.
