Gorey Designed his Business Card (Proof)

Gorey Designed his Business Card (Proof)

After Bobbs Merrill, Gorey never worked full-time for a publisher, but did freelance work as an independent artist as his design skills became in great demand.  In 1963 he published The Vinegar Works and The Wuggly Ump and illustrated Rhoda Levine’s Three Ladies Beside the Sea.  He also did the design and art work for at least six book covers and published illustrations in Rogue, Playboy, Holiday, and Friends Magazine (2).   

 Following are a few examples of Gorey’s illustrations demonstrating the range and breadth of his work.
