Edward Gorey

The Recently Deflowered Girl

by Mel Juffe

"The Recently Deflowered Girl is a tongue-in-cheek guide providing advice for that trickiest of situations. In the voice of Miss Hyachinthe Phypps, Mel Juffe's hilarious yet demure counsel is delightfully accompanied by Edward Gorey's ink and watercolor illustrations."

Found via Boystown, excellent internet reading, lens focusing over punk/homo/lesbian/girlpower/undeground world, - this post links the whole Phypps/Gorey book (orig. 1965) scanned in a PDF form (also available here).
Sincerely hilarious and odd, it is a sort of parody of etiquette book en vogue in 60s, offered by imaginary 'Miss Hyacinthe Phypps [..] simple rules of propriety and common sense'. Genius.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
