Alexandria is another of the gorgeous and curious Griffin and Sabine series by Nick Bantock.

Though nothing can compare to the wonder of reading the intial book in the series for the first time, Alexandria holds its own pretty well as the story continues to unfold.

One feels a little like a voyeur, opening and reading the letters and beautiful postcards pasted into the book. The reader is allowed to create their own story from the glimpses of correspondence between Griffen and Sabnine. The mystery continues.

Bantock's intricate art is part Victorian, part modern, part fantasy, and all beauty.
