Picture books are meant for kids, sure, but does anybody know of any good picture books that can be geared toward adults too?

I'm a huge fan of The Missing Piece and the Big O by Shel Silverstein. My roommate gave it to her little brother after his first heartbreak, I thought that was perfect.

 I think anything by Edward Gorey falls into this category too.

It's a small market but I think it's growing with books like "Go the F to sleep" and "I am a Pole (And So Can You!)" By Stephen Colbert.

So, yes! Any recommendations?
