Gorey Bat Cufflinks
You may recognize creatures similar to these bats flying around the opening titles of WGBH’s MYSTERY! in which Edward Gorey’s illustrations come to animated life. These sterling silver cufflinks, based on one of his drawings, add originality to any ensemble without sacrificing elegance. The cufflinks are of good weight with high quality toggles.
A unique figure in American art and illustration, Edward Gorey was born in Chicago in 1925 and died at the turn of the millennium. Defying stylistic description, he has been called an eccentric genius and an Edwardian enigma. Gorey’s painstakingly executed, almost etched style is at once recognizable both for its graphic qualities and extraordinary imagery. His art synthesized a love of literature and a genius for the possibilities of pen and ink.
