Before his now iconic books drew critical acclaim and a dedicated following, Edward Gorey designed book covers in the crowded single room of Doubleday Anchors art department. Not yet thirty and recently graduated from Harvard, Gorey initially illustrated paperback covers and dust jackets for the likes of Joseph Conrad, Henry James, and Charles Dickens, establishing a pen-and-ink hand-lettered style that would challenge prevailing American publishing standards and help define his publishers visual identities. Today, Goreys prodigious output of hundreds of dust jackets and paperback covers evidences his distinctive flair for design and his extraordinary ability to portray the essence of the books that came his way.

With subjects ranging from fine art, nature, and architecture to humour, the metaphysical, and more, Pomegranates interlocking jigsaw puzzles combine stunning images, superb colour reproduction, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzle solvers alike.
