Featured: Two by Edward Gorey




 Bleak House
Illustrations by Edward Gorey
(out of print)





Wolves Of Willoughby Chase
Cover by Edward Gorey
Illustrations by Pat Marriott

There has been a good bit of speculation about the identity of Pat Marriott, with many folks claming that it's yet another Gorey alias. Marriott's illustrations do resemble Gorey's Bleak House illustrations, but they also look an awful lot like Edward Ardizzone's work...In an interview with BookSense, Joan Aiken states quite clearly that Edward Gorey did not illustrate Wolves and credits Pat Marriott. So there ya go folks!
