Edward Gorey Decorated Envelopes

The publication, Floating Worlds: The Letters of Edward Gorey and Peter F. Neumeyer, reproduces the never-before-seen, typewriter-transcribed personal correspondence and illustrated envelopes between Gorey and Neumeyer as they collaborated on several children's books, between 1968 and 1969. via The mail carrier must have loved delivering this mail with the cleverly illustrated envelopes. LOVE!

I love this, Rosemary, and will definitely look for the book. Thank you. I, too, enjoy decorating my envelopes to dear friends. Lately, I've been painting red hearts to resemble a kite and the kite string says, "SAVE THE USPS!" I paint them on every piece of mail being sent. Can you imagine a world where no one will receive a handwritten love letter. Too sad for words.

Gail, northern California -- Gail, Your decorated envelopes sound delightful. I hope they work to save the USPS because going out to get my mail is one of my favorite things to do. Your friends must love getting mail from you.
xo, Rosemary

I ordered "Floating Worlds" from my local independent bookstore too. A gift to myself.
