Bantock, Nick.
Griffin & Sabine. An Extraordinary Correspondence. [with] Sabine's Notebook [with] The Golden Mean.

San Francisco Chronicle Books: 1991, 1992, 1993.

The three volumes of this rather extraordinary chronicle, told through postcards and letters. Griffin Moss, a postcard designer, begins a correspondence with Sabine Strohem, a mysterious woman who lives on a South Pacific island. Who is Sabine, and how can she know so much about Griffin and his work? Near the end of Book One we think we know the answer to the mystery, only to be completely baffled on the final page. Books Two and Three continue as Bantock tries to make sense of the world he has created. He never quite lives up to the magic of the first book, but the wonderful, quirky artwork alone is enough to keep you going.

3 volumes. Hardcover. 8"x8", djs illustrated with color plates, inserts, etc. Near fine.
