The Osbick Bird book.

The Osbick Bird book. Born in Chicago, Gorey came from a colorful family; his parents, Helen Dunham Garvey and Edward Lee Gorey, divorced in 1936 when he was 11, then remarried in 1952 when he was 27. One of his step-mothers was Corinna Mura, a cabaret singer who had a brief role in the classic film Casablanca. His father was briefly a journalist.

Some Gorey enthusiasts believe there is more to his many works than meets the eye. This delightful Osbick Bird tale just might be about an artist and his muse (the two frequently harmonize.

I have collected Edward Gorey's books for a few years. They are darkly humorous with black ink drawn illustrations that add to their macabre charm. The man is genius (okay, was a genius ~ he is dead)
I would not hesitate to buy any book he has (had) written. Go for the hardvover editions ~ deals to be had if you carefully buy used books. Amazon is a wonderful resource for Gorey treasures.

Edward Gorey's art and humor can only be truly appreciated by those who have a tenuous grasp on what it means to be truly human. And we acknowledge it is an eternal quest.

It was a gift. Giftee seemed very happy with it. I haven't read it yet but will when I finish with my book presents-and get it on loan from giftee.
Wonderful nonsense verse, accompanied by the author's artwork.
Emblus Fingby is befriended by an osbick bird, which shares his life:
"The years passed by in pressing weeds
And making bell-pulls out of beads."

The faithful creature even roosts on its deceased owner's gravestone...for a bit:
"But after several months, one day
It changed its mind and flew away."

Loved it!
