This was recommended to me by a friend who sends me flying letters - and the book is full of illustrated envelopes and postcards. I can see why she liked it on another level too - her art and the art in the book have the same lovely sense of playfulness. Bantock's work is inspiring, weird, charming......and sometimes a bit gruesome. I am not a ...more

I am so torn with this book. As I was reading it, my husband turned to me and said, "That's a book you're reading?" as I was pulling out letters fr ...more
Two very odd books, actually. Fairly slender, they purported to be reproductions of an ongoing correspondence between Griffin, a London artist, and Sabine, a stamp designer on a remote Pacific island nation.

I looked at a few of the pictures. Lush is not the first descriptive word that comes to mind for me as I look at them. Interesting, colorfull - ok for some of them. Wierd, dull not interesting comprise my feelings for the others. Letters stuck into little envelopes and the front and back ...more
****To the real Readers of reviews, please enjoy...and hope you enjoy this book too!
I don't remember the story. I think Griffin sounded whiny and at some point thought he probably had split personalities and for the entire time he was writing and illustrating stuff with himself. I actually also didn' ...more
