With a cult following, Gorey’s designs bring to mind macabre Edwardian and Victorian sensibilities, always with a side of wicked humor. In 1980, he was commissioned by PBS to create a variety of posters for its ongoing Mystery! series, as well as its animated introduction. With far less detail than his other images, this chilling design for the Demon Barber of Fleet Street strikes a delightfully ominous chord.
