Griffin: It's good to get in touch with you at last. Could I have one of your fish postcards? I think you were right--the wine glass has more impact than the cup. -Sabine

But Griffin had never met a woman named Sabine. How did she know him? How did she know his artwork? Who is she? Thus begins the strange and intriguing correspondence of Griffin and Sabine. And since each letter must be pulled from its own envelope, the reader has the delightful, forbidden sensation of reading someone else's mail. Griffin & Sabine is like no other illustrated novel: appealing to the poet and artist in everyone and sure to inspire a renaissance in the fine art of letter-writing, it tells an extraordinary story in an extraordinary way.

A man in London gets a postcard from a South Seas Woman who has been telepathically viewing his artwork. This is such an extraordinary book full of surprises. Much of the writing is in letters which reader takes out of envelopes or reads on postcards and the pictures are really interesting if a bit macabre. Very different kind of read. Imagine walking through an art gallery viewing cartoon art, that's what it feels like.
