"He lived with as many as six cats at a time: the 'people,' he claimed, to whom he felt closest." [source: harvardmagazine]

I'm a big fan of Edward Gorey and his amazing illustrations, - and i love the above picture (by Steve Marsel). Just found these brief video interviews @ youtube.

Begli anellini.

[wiki] "In the book The Strange Case of Edward Gorey, published after Gorey's death, his friend Alexander Theroux reported that when Gorey was pressed on the matter of his sexual orientation, he said that even he was not sure whether he was gay or straight. When asked what his sexual preferences were in an interview, he said, “ I'm neither one thing nor the other particularly. I am fortunate in that I am apparently reasonably undersexed or something...I've never said that I was gay and I've never said that I wasn't...what I'm trying to say is that I am a person before I am anything else....
It is possible that Gorey was asexual. Theroux paints a portrait of a man who lived a fairly solitary existence by choice, friendly, generous, and apparently comfortable with strangers, but strongly preferring to be alone most of the time."

I just read your feedback: first, let me thank you for paying a visit to this website.

Then, let me tell you that, simply, I am a big fan of Edward Gorey, buying his books, and spreading his genius now and then on these webpages. A Genius that you had the luck of picturing in the mentioned photo I promptly removed soon once read your legal notice.

Be sure nobody was trying to steal or offend your excellent photography, formerly here posted, and randomly found on internet (google for it, please).

Plus, as you could check on left from the original literal content of this post by yourself (or your kind legals/agents/whatever), still availble here, the mentioned photography (now removed) was correctly referred as YOURS (not mine or whatever), ALSO also a direct link to your amazing website and other amazing works.
Plus, you are also mentioned between the article's tags.

I hope you have now satisfaction.

PS. Please, eventually, next time check for a quicker answer to your needs on this website.
