from @edwardgoreytrust “The first child of a Mrs. Keats-Shelley / Came to light with its face in its belly; / Her second was born / With a hump and a horn, / And her third was as shapeless as jelly.” Happy Mother’s Day to all of our dear mothers who got more than they bargained for! With original art and lettering from THE LISTING ATTIC, first published in 1954. Pen and ink on paper, 6 2/3 x 5 1/5 inches.
