Edward Gorey: Neglected Murderesses: Boxed Notecards
Twenty assorted 5 x 7 in. blank notecards (5 each of 4 designs) with envelopes in a decorative box Printed on recycled paper
Presented with tongue firmly in cheek, Neglected Murderesses features delightfully wicked specimens of “the fairer sex” whose homicidal acts have faded into obscurity, including bowler-turned-basher Miss Q. P. Urkheimer and crochet-hook skewerer Mrs. Daisy Sallow.
If not for the sleuthing of Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000), whose fearless rehabilitation of better-known murderers such as Dracula, the Wuggly Ump, and the malfeasants presented in PBS’s Mystery! earned the admiration of countless law-abiding citizens, we might have gone to our graves without a proper appreciation of the important part women have played in the history of homicide.
