Dillweed's Revenge

If you're in Portland in the coming month, stop by Nationale on Burnside to see new illustrations by Carson Ellis, on display until Oct. 3rd. Carson of course is well known for her artwork for The Decembrists, among other things. These new illustrations are amazing—they're for the book "Dillweed's Revenge," a dark tale written by Florence Parry Heide (author of the Treehorn books) that was originally supposed to have been illustrated by Edward Gorey (!). The ending is, um, grim, so I'm not sure when I'll show the book to my daughters, but I can't wait to own it nevertheless...
