In this final, stunning volume of the Griffin & Sabine saga, author and artist Bantock completes the inspiring story of two lovers who developed an epistolary relationship without ever meeting in the flesh. Each page of the book presents an intricately painted or drawn postcard on one side and the continued handwritten correspondence among Griffin, Sabine, and a few other characters on the other, or in some cases, actual envelopes that the reader will pull folded letters from. The artwork tells an ethereal story of its own, and as Griffin travels from England and Sabine journeys from the South Pacific to finally come together for the first time in Alexandria at the fabled Pharos Gate, the obstacles they each encounter take a mystical turn. The immersive experience of this book can be enjoyed on its own or in conjunction with the six other books in the series. However it is read, Bantock's conclusion to the epistolary epic is beautiful and truly singular. Agent: Brenda Bowen, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates (Mar.)
