Weaving tales as unsettling as they are hilarious, Gorey paired ominous humor with vaguely Victorian style, whether he was designing stage sets and costumes or writing plays and books. Occasionally, though, he expressed a fondness for the little things in life. In 1993, the New Yorker first ran Gorey’s Verse Advice, a series of 12 images printed in a four-page spread. From home improvement to social interaction, the advice in these illustrations is quite quotidian.
