Frightfully interesting books from Special Collections!



Come to the Library Ground floor

You’ll find creepy old things by the score!

And there might be a bloodthirsty story~

A collection of books by E. Gorey!

Edward Gorey was a prolific illustrator, artist, writer, puppeteer, and set designer with a quirky and macabre sense of humor.  In addition to illustrating his own books, he also created artwork for other books, such as Charles Dickens’s Bleak House.

In addition to a fiendishly entertaining collection of books illustrated by Edward Gorey, WPI Special Collections has 11 books on cemeteries, 7 books on sepulchral monuments, and 1 book with the story “The Goblin Spider” by Lafcadio Hearn.
