Black Maria is a book by Charles Addams.
First published by Simon & Schuster in 1960, it is Addams' sixth anthology of drawings of The Addams Family.
- If Chas Addams is not America's favorite cartoonist, he is certainly our most original and durable one. For years he has delighted and charmed and chilled us by showing the things which really exist behind the facades of old abandoned Victorian houses. Here then - define it as you will or define it not at all - is a magnum of that old black magic as bottled only at that château of CHAS ADDAMS.
