Fans campaign to get artist Edward Gorey on a postage stamp to mark 100th birthday
The “Doubtful Guest” peeking out from your letters? Maybe a mysterious black-cloaked “Mystery!” figure standing watch over the address? Or a top-hatted skeleton gazing out at creditors?
That type of artwork by Edward Gorey could potentially be stuck on letters, cards, bills and solicitations all over the country, if supporters are successful in convincing the U.S. Postal Service that the late Yarmouth Port illustrator and writer should get his own stamp.
The ideal timing would be 2025, marking what would have been Gorey’s 100th birthday.
