Image of the Day

Author and illustrator Edward Gorey, who died in 2000,
snoozing with his cats.

The Ivies score again. Columbia University Libraries announced this week that it received a gift of more than 700 drawings, etchings, and posters by Edward Gorey. The collection, donated by Andrew Alpern, a lawyer and architectural historian, includes nearly every edition of every work that Gorey published during his lifetime. (On a somewhat unrelated topic, it looks like there's a documentary on Gorey in the works.)

Gorey's original (and best) credits for PBS's "Mystery."
