"When I moved to the Pacific Northwest, I became acquainted with a most curious creature, the bushy-tailed wood rat, also known as the pack rat. These are nature’s little folk artists, always searching for interesting items to bring back to their nests, constantly adding new treasures to their collections."—Irene Hardwicke Olivieri, Closer to Wildness.

A Renaissance man of boundless imagination, Edward St. John Gorey (American, 1925-2000) authored over one hundred published works, designed sets and costumes for theatrical productions, and had a profound affection for ballet, literature, film, and animals. Cats were a particular Gorey favorite and appear in many of his works, as do a number of other creatures—some recognizable, and some known only in the trademark crosshatched drawings emanating from Gorey’s prolific pen. All of his characters inhabit a uniquely enigmatic world, where the lamentable frailties of existence are humorously assuaged by the hopeful delights of fantasy.
Now you can spend more time with his beloved creations in this newly available puzzle!
