Edward Gorey: I Love a Mystery Week 1978

In 1978 I Love a Mystery Week was celebrated by the Second International Conference of Crime Writers. The event's picture book, limited to 800 copies, contains photographs by Jiro Kimura and bears a cover illustration by Edward Gorey. Gorey's cover presents much for mystery lovers to love too, at least for those who might be intrigued by the use of large urns to conceal bodies or to the pleasure of reading books like The Crocheted Turnip Murders.
