Featuring Edward Gorey’s ever-popular dark humor, The Betrayed Confidence Revisited offers ten of the artist’s postcard series, including Neglected Murderesses, as well as his annual creations promoting National Post Card Week. His two Q.R.V. sets are here, along with Whatever Next?, Alms for Oblivion, Sc?nes de Ballet, the Dogear Wryde Interpretive Series (reproduced in full color), Menaced Objects, and Tragedies Topiares.
The original edition of The Betrayed Confidence was published in 1992 and is long out of print. This revised edition supplements the contents of that book with three series not previously included, along with an introductory essay by Edward Bradford, the official Edward Gorey bibliographer. A must for Gorey collectors, The Betrayed Confidence Revisited is also an illuminating collection for discovering the breadth of content explored by Gorey, all tinged with his unmistakable and sometimes-elusive droll perspective.
