Jan 15, 2012 c.vance rated it really liked it  ·  (Review from the author)
it came together well---
the images set a tone and rhythm throughout that compliments the prose well; the sepia-pages fit well in concept with the work... visually, it's rather remarkable.

the conceptual writing was paired down in the editing process; far more coherent... maybe not as much risk as there should be. but it is a concise telling of 212 fables relating to a family history...

if you read it, let me know what you think--- positive or negative.
