12 Correspondence Notes by Edward Gorey for New York City Ballet

Edward Gorey

New York: New York City Ballet, (ca 1975). Boxed set of 12 correspondence note cards illustrated by Edward Gorey. Four designs and three cards of each design, along with 12 blank envelopes. Enclosed in red cardboard box which has been creased on one side, a clear plastic cover with a small tear, lid taped shut with what appears to be the original tape when it was sold, so never opened, very good condition. Cards are in fine condition. (Toledano p. 159).

Gorey was a huge fan of the George Ballanchine New York City Ballet. He had an almost perfect attendance for the years 1956 - 1983. He would give back to the ballet by designing items that they could sell, including cards and buttons.
