ISBN10: 2811026150 ISBN13: 9782811026158 Publisher: Minneapolis Institute of Arts Published: Mar 5 1984
A catalogue from an exhibition of books and drawings at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Leslie Memorial Room, October 26, 1984 to March 17, 1985. Signed by Gorey on the cover. Unbound six-page pamphlet on white paper, 8.5 by 11 inches, with a laid-in notice: "Because of recent events, West Wing and The Loathsome Couple will not be exhibited. Water Flowers is on display instead." The Loathsome Couple was inspired by the Moors Murders committed by Ian Brady and Myra Hindley; Mr. Gorey refused to send the art and offered Water Flowers as a replacement, after a child molestation case in Minneapolis garnered attention in the national press. Pamphlet is lightly toned front and back.
