Goreys The Black Doll Figure

Goreys The Black Doll Figure



Goreys The Black Doll Figure is an Urban Collector pre-order. A life-long friend of Edward Gorey's made 'The Black Doll' for him in 1942. Gorey visited her while she was making it, and upon seeing it insisted on keeping it in its unfinished state, lacking a face, arms and clothing. In spite of her objection, Gorey prevailed. The incomplete Black Doll has remained a recurring enigma for almost 70 years appearing in many of Gorey's books and drawings as well as being the subject of his silent screenplay. This is the first time The Black Doll has been produced for Edward Gorey's devoted following. Necessaries Toy Foundation in conjunction with the Edward Gorey Charitable Trust will release The Black Doll in a limited edition of 2,000. Measuring 13' tall, it is larger than the original, which measured roughly 7'. The minimally yet artfully designed box boasts on the back, an account of the original doll's history. The whole package is a sublime tribute to a most beloved artist.
