      An excellent look into Gorey's creative process from text to image. The sketches mainly show the protagonist, Drusilla, and the eccentric old gentleman, Mr. Crague, whom she meets on a trip abroad. The 3 large sheets are standard 8 1/2x11-inch white paper and have a central horizontal fold; the text sheet is light blue and measures 8x6 inches, with three horizontal folds.
