One of my favorite books of all time, a wonderful work of art. A best-seller in 1991 when it was originally released, this will still delight those who missed it the first time around. Seriously, I can't emphasize enough how fascinating this is.
The book is made up of the correspondence between two artists. The draw of the feeling of reading someone's mail, to the extent of being able to remove letters from envelopes, all built into the book, makes this an absolutely captivating reading experience.
The art is outstanding. Here's one of the postcards Griffin and Sabine exchange:
Highly recommended. Would make an excellent gift.
