About The Black Doll -

A life-long friend of Edward Gorey's made The Black Doll for him in 1942.  Gorey visited her while she was making it, and upon seeing it insisted on keeping it in its unfinished state, lacking a face, arms and clothing. In spite of her objection, Edward Gorey prevailed.  It may be the first recorded instance of Gorey's enduring dedication to engaging the imagination.  The incomplete Black Doll has remained a recurring enigma for almost 70 years appearing in many of Gorey's books and drawings as well as being the subject of his silent screenplay.  This is the first time The Black Doll has been produced for Edward Gorey's devoted following.
