Edward Gorey's illustrations for War of the Worlds

Zack sez, "Brain Pickings has a selection of illustrations for Edward Gorey's little-seen take on H.G. Wells' classic tale of Martian invasion. It's every bit as creepy as you'd think."

At the end of his time at Doubleday, Gorey illustrated a special edition of H. G. Wells's The War of the Worlds for the celebrated Looking Glass Library series, published in 1960 under the New York Review of Books Classics imprint. One of Gorey's inimitable pen-and-ink drawings adorns the beginning of each chapter.
