One Christmas I gave T a copy of my favorite Edward Goery book, The Gashlycrumb Tinies. It's a morbid take on the Alphabet where Victorian children die dark and lonely deaths in Alphabetical order according to their first name. It's a feel good book as you can tell!
Below are examples of Mr. Gorey's grimly beautiful artwork along with an outfit that I put together inspired by his gloomy Victorian Tinies. May the Tinies rest in peace!
