TUNNEL CALAMITY

TUNNEL CALAMITY

(New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1984).

FIRST EDITION SIGNED BY AMERICAN ARTIST EDWARD GOREY, this is a charming "Magic Windows" book, with illustrations typical of Gorey's well-known macabre whimsy. The book lies flat, but when you pick it up and hold it by the upper cover the accordion folds extend, giving you a view of the tunnel and the extraordinary happenings taking place within it. The tunnel comes alive in eight die-cut layers seen through a window above the tunnel's entrance on the front cover. Gorey has signed the rear board, which also serves as the title-page. Item #30288
