As seen over on Brain Pickings, there is a new book called Floating Worlds: The Letters of Edward Gorey and Peter F. Neumeyer. In addition to being a book of correspondence featuring "everything from metaphysics to pancake recipes", the book also shows Gorey's illustrated envelopes.
Maria Popova's review said it best,"Floating Worlds is as much a powerful personal memoir of an unusual friendship as it is a priceless cultural treasure containing the spirit and legacy of one of the twentieth-century’s most unique, influential and prolific creators."
Let me try to tell you how much I love this. First, I'd have to explain how Edward Gorey is one of my biggest influences and heroes. Then, I'd have to convince you of how much I love mail (which I attempt to do here every Monday, Wednesday and Friday). Finally, you'd have to combine those things. That is how much I love this.
