The books that first introduced me to the wonderful world of Nick Bantock.

Voyeuristic in nature, the reader slowly unravels an epistolary mystery by reading both the letters and postcards sent between Griffin and Sabine. The story deepens as each letter must be opened and removed from its envelope; transforming the act of reading from passive to active.

Heavily illustrated with incredibly dense multi-media collages, as well as gorgeous postcards and hand-written letters, all the books in the ser...more

I loved the first book, Griffin and Sabine, and sort of wish it had been left as a stand-alone. The next two books, Sabine's Notebook and The Golden Mean, rounded the series out as a pretty darn good trilogy. I really wish he had ended the series there.

There is Good and there is Evil, and neither is very interesting. The two new Good people occasionally w...more

It seemed easier to add the boxed set, since I think that's the only way to read these. I discovered books 3 and 4 in the series at a used book sale and then I went back and read them all together.

These picture books for adults are a pleasure to read - I love the "han...more

I am in love with this story. I have read the 6 books several times, and each time I find myself consumed with the romance and mystery of this fascinating tale. The art work is stunning and contributes to the plot. Definitely one of my favorites of all time.
Missy Sullivan
Amazing, beautiful artwork--very satisfying and fun to actually pull letters out of envelopes that are embedded in the book. Alas, the mysterious, metaphysical love story loses a lot of its magic (novelty) after the first two books.

The most unique thing I have ever read. A combination of art, postcards, and a love story. Everyone should read this.
