The Null Device

Another one for the Library of Dreams

I just found out that, at the time of his death, one of the projects Edward Gorey had lined up was the illustrations to a new edition of Borges' Book of Imaginary Beings. It's a real pity he never got to do it. (via MeFi)

Nice. It reminds me a bit of Dave McKean's artwork; either that or Joseph Cornell's boxes.

I love Dave Mckean's stuff, have you read/viewed 'Cages' his graphic novel, I think it is very well done. Not familiar with Joseph Cornell though, will have to check him out.

I haven't read Cages yet; I saw it in Slow Glass before they closed last year, but didn't end up buying it.

You can get it from Minotaur, it's around the $100 mark. You can also borrow it from Melbourne Uni Library.
