Edward Gorey Mail Artist Extraordinaire

Mail art is all the rage now. Much of the mail I receive (friendly, letter mail that is) is decorated in some way. I am not a mail artist myself but I never cease to enjoy the efforts of others. To my delight I have learned that Edward Gorey (possibly most remembered for his work on Masterpiece Mystery) was not only an accomplished illustrator but he was a mail artist as well.

The images below are borrowed from Brain Pickings and you can read more about Mr. Gorey and his letters to Mr. Neumeyer there. Enjoy!
