Interesting concept. The book takes place in a world where western civilization of today exists as a set of ruins. The knowledge of the world has been forgotten. A set of archaeologists comes upon old Paris, specifically the art museum and Pyramid. Here begins the quest to decipher the clues left behind. The archaeologists make laughable claims about our society such as "they communicate with pictures...illiterate". It was funny to watch as they took pictures....famous pieces of art...and tried to piece them together as if they were a graphic novel.**(Side note: Maybe the book was better then I thought...I didn't realize this obvious parallel until just now)***.....

The use of the famous art as frames, more realistic then that used in the comic, was an interesting way to integrate the story.
