For Sell A Day 
sell a day is in color I m rather neutral about it Christmas Wrap Up 2 HolidayA colored one paneled picture of a family with their giant potted plant that they are wrapping with Christmas paper It s all it is Not much hereThe Admonitory Hippopotamus or Angelica and Sneezby 2 poetryGorey has written a 3 page poem here about a Hippopotamus who seems to keep this woman out of trouble She never learns from her mistakes which make it sound like she murders steals and other things The hippo warns her and she flees She dies at 86 and the Hippo carries her away It was strange and interesting but it didn t move me or really engage my mind Tragedies Topiares 3Another series of postcards with the theme being shaped shrubs in the shape of bathtubs cannons and other things The words are French and I assume we can figure them out by what the picture is about There isn t a caption for this set People do die in this one as well He loves his details in his artwork The man was an odd bird which is why he has such a fanbase I m sure Serious Life A Cruise 3Another little story in color This is two pages of 8 pictures tell the story of a woman falling for a man and his mustache only to find out everything about the man is fake and the woman throws herself overboard C est droll I suppose This is like a passing thought it s there and gone and really you don t remember it again I didn t think much of it La Malle Saignante the Bleeding Trunk 3This is told in both French and English I do wonder if he was fluent in French as he uses French throughout his works I assumed he knew enough but this piece makes me think he knows his French This story also feels like an opera The story doesn t make sense either The end does not seem to match the beginning We start with a women running from an alligator in the sewer She exits into a street brawl and then goes looking a street brawl and then goes looking the ambassador She goes to see her father and confusing characters oin us She dances with a baron and the ambassador doesn t show up and the story seems to end in the middle of it It feels like this wasn t finished to me I wonder if this is like an unfinished work I ll have to look it up The artwork is hyper detailed It s beautiful The story is senseless and not really funny either This is an odd one I don t know what to make of it This collection of Amphigorey again has been disappointing There have been a few good stories while the rest disappoint The Izzard Book 4This is unfinished There are 3 4 frames at the end with bare outlines of the picture The words are under the pictures but 2 of them are completely blank The rest of them are beautifully detailed pictures This is about the letter Z and Edward found all these historical words beginning with Z that we don t hear of often and did a little depiction of them I love learning new Z words Zadkiel is an angel There is Ziph Zingaro Zenobia Zuleika Zwieback Zeno Zmyrna which is an epic poem with only 3 surviving lines Zeugma a figure of speech There is Zenodotus the head of the Alexandrian library Zeuxis Zosimus and lastly Zetetic Those are some good words There were others that I knew of It s too bad he didn t finish this one Zosimus and Zetetic are both blank I enjoy his wordplay in stuff like thisThis is the last of Amphigorey Again.

This latest collection displays in glorious abundance the offbeat characters and droll humor of Edward Gorey Figbash is acrobatic topiaries are tragic hippopotami are admonitory and galoshes are remorseful in this celebra tion of a uniue talent that never fails to delight amuse and confound   Amphigorey Again contains previously uncollected work and two unpublished stori.
