This charming lapel pin is a take-it-with-you reminder of one of life's simpler pleasures. This now familiar cat reclines in contentment atop a pile of leather bound tomes. On the reverse is engraved: 'books. cats. life is sweet' - a philosophy of life close to Edward Gorey's heart. The pin has been adapted from an unpublished drawing by Edward Gorey created in 1980s.

Created using the lost wax casting process where a carved or cast wax original is encased in clay or other investment, the wax is melted under temperature and the resulting voids are filled with molten metal. Used since early Egyptian times for casting fine metals where the highest level of detail was required. This a nickel silver pin; approximately 1" wide by 1" tall.
