Edward Gorey: Christmas in the Eggplant Hills

Christmas in the Eggplant Hills is a 1989 Christmas card designed by Edward Gorey. Three rabbits dressed in plaid decorate a spooky scarecrow and an anthropomorphic root vegetable with Christmas tree ornaments. Any questions?

An example of this card signed by Mr. Gorey was sold last week on eBay for $53. The seller correctly points out that an unsigned card is currently available (on Amazon) for $275.

Is that thing a parsnip? Whatever the case, this blog still has more to say about Edward Gorey.
