Griffin and Sabine, 25th Anniversary Limited Edition: An Extraordinary Correspondence (-25th Anniversary)
Griffin and Sabine, 25th Anniversary Limited Edition: An Extraordinary Correspondence (-25th Anniversary) | Nick Bantock
6 posts | 14 read | 3 to read
Don't miss The Pharos Gate, the final volume in the Griffin & Sabine story. Published simultaneously with the 25th-anniversary edition of Griffin & Sabine, the book finally shares what happened to the lovers. "Wondrous, ingenious, gorgeous . . ." USA Today "Extremely original . . . classical myth, reality, and fantasy are blended artfully in this modern allegory" Los Angeles Times Beloved by millions the world over, Griffin & Sabine redefines the art of the novel. With its combination of lush illustration, creative storytelling, and the guilty pleasure of reading other people's correspondence, Griffin & Sabine is part romance, part mystery, and completely a work of art. Each turn of the page contains a new card or letter to be unfolded from its envelope, and is vibrant with wildly imaginative creatures, landscapes, and intrigue. Destined to become a collector's volume, this limited, 25th anniversary edition contains new artwork, an original postcard, and specially created decorative stamps, making this a book that is as rewarding to enjoy all over again or to discover for the very first time."

*Sabine will go a long way to finally meet her Griffin, perhaps as far as “the line where the sky meets the sea.”

marleed Oh my gosh, I‘m so obsessed with those books. I‘m missing the Alexandria one but I have all the others! 6mo
gradcat @marleed They‘re very beautiful, aren‘t they? 🥰 6mo
marleed It‘s such an intriguing way to read a series. Taking the letters out of the envelopes forces you to just sit and enjoy the process. 6mo
gradcat I think you could read one in an hour...but the reread & review value is high! @marleed (edited) 6mo

#ReadingResolutions Day 23: This remains, hands down, one of he most ingeniously crafted #lovestory that I know of. With handmade postcards and hand-written letters and uniquely strange art, this remains unparalleled. Full and super detailed review here: https://gatheringbooks.org/2011/01/15/griffin-and-sabine-by-nick-bantock-an-extr...
