BK - Gorey CAT eGory Book 50 DrawingsFinally, back in print! Edward Gorey’s CAT E GORY was first published by Gotham Book Mart in 1974. The English language edition has been out of print for decades. One of Gorey’s most beloved books, CAT GORY collects a series of fifty cat vignettes, originally created by the artist as accompaniments to a limited edition of his book Amphigorey.
Gorey once said, “I can’t conceive of a life without cats.” Now Gorey fans and cat lovers alike won’t have to conceive of a world without CAT E GOREY.
