Format: Hardcover
The original paperbound edition was published in 1992, while Gorey was alive. It contained seven of his postcard sets, and in this reprisal, in a new hardbound edtion, they are joined by three more. While several of the postcard sets are reprinted here, I see four reasons (maybe five) to buy "The Betrayed Confidence Revisited": Edward Gorey's hand-painted edition of "Interpretive Series", his National Post Card Week postcards, "Q.R.V. Unwmkd. Imperf." and "Q.R.V. Hikuptah", and Edward Bradford's enlightening essay on these works in his "Separate Unity". Together they are worth the price of acquisition.

A real visual treat comes in the hand-painted edition of the "Interpretive Series" postcards. Most Gorey enthusiasts would not have seen them all otherwise. The inclusion of the handpainted edition is brilliant. Our reptilian dramatist truly comes alive in Gorey's chromatic palette. The National Post Card Week series is very entertaining, seeming to capture the moment in time they commemorate, and this is the first time I've seen them assembled.

But an unexpected pleasure came near the end, with the two Q.R.V. postcard series "Unwmkd. Imperf.", and "Hikuptah". They appear here in contrast to Gorey's illustrative hand, and I found them surprisingly fresh and satisfying, presented this way. They became intriguing, grounded in Dada and the surrealist traditions that Gorey is said to have embraced. They remind me of parts of the Max Ernst surrealistic graphic novel "Une Semaine De Bonte: A Surrealistic Novel in Collage" (A Week of Kindness), particulary of "Friday: Three Visible Poems".

Now, if we can only figure out how to present Gorey's cut-apart books in one volume...
