Cat Fancy Edward Gorey had a fondness for cats. One can only imagine what’s happening in Cat Fancy. Is a cat outside looking in the window at the pampered feline? Is the kitty on the bed seeing itself in a mirror? Gorey’s artwork proved him to be a master of the amusing, the strange, and the unexpected. This intricate crosshatched drawing makes this 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle a headscratcher!

Artist and author Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000) is beloved for the boundless imagination and sharp humor exhibited in his more than 100 published works. Gorey was also a set and costume designer for innumerable theater productions, including a staging of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, for which he won a Tony. He had a profound affection for literature, film, ballet, and animals. Cats and other odd creatures appear in many of his crosshatched illustrations. His humorously unsettling drawings of vaguely Victorian innocents facing unfortunate ends became familiar to a wide audience after appearing in the opening credits of the PBS television series Mystery! Gorey’s Cape Cod home, a veritable cabinet of curiosities, is now a museum celebrating his life and work.
