Staff Reviews

I first read this book over 10 years ago, & I continue to revisit this favorite author and artist on an almost yearly basis. Bantock's oddly beautiful collage work adds an otherworldliness to the relatively simple storyline (two strangers falling in love) and the almost vintage delivery method (through handwritten postcards & letters). You'll love every moment of invading the privacy of Griffin & Sabine.

Note: The series consists of six books in all, and a new seventh volume of "lost correspondence" The Pharos Gate, has just been released this year. With each volume, the tale grows more fantastic and outlandish, so make sure you're ready for some fantasy elements if you continue beyond book one. But I highly encourage it. These books claim a highly prized spot on my personal bookshelves.

— From Griffin and Sabine, by Nick Bantock


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.
