A couple of Gashlycrumb tinies

Gashlycrumb Tinies is a gloriously macabre book by the appropriately named Edward Gorey featuring 26 gruesome child deaths. It's more entertaining than it sounds!

I love Gorey. Just a year or two ago, I happened to be in San Diego when they had an exhibit of his work at SDSU. Was great to see his original sketches and pieces.

A friend of mine put these up too. I wasn't happy until I had read every child of the alphabet and learned their gruesome fate. It reminds me of the really dark Grimm Fairytales.
