Twice a Day, In Vaudeville

John Halbo suggests that Joseph Moncure March's The Wild Party would make an excellent stocking stuffer. And I agree. Just search inside the book and you'll see (Gads! Now I'm rhyming! Oh what luck, and timing...)

Anyway, This book is made all the better with At Spiegelman's illustrations. Which got me thinking, what other little books would thrill adults (of a suitably deranged and askew humor) if they were to find them in their stockings on Christmas morning?

Obviously, for illustrated books full of humor and strangeness, the grand master is Edward Gorey. Amazon has a nice little catalog of all of his books in print and they are all well worth it.

Any other suggestions?
