Edward Gorey is one of my all time favorites. His writing and his illustrations are fantastic. So, as you can imagine, I was delighted when a good friend of mine passed along this book. It's been making its rounds of the blog circuit of late but I've only just seen it today. The Recently Deflowered Girl by Hyacinthe Phyppe, illustrated by Gorey, is both beautiful, disturbing AND funny. It gave me a weird feeling, but I still enjoyed it.
I'm only going to show my favorite page so I don't get in trouble. I'm sure you can find the rest out there if you do a quick search.
