Nick Bantock was born in England. He went to school in the soulless suburbs of North East London, and from there he moved on to art college in the market town of Maidstone, Kent. At the age of 23, he gave up his job in a betting shop and began working as a freelance illustrator. Over the next 16 years, he produced covers for approximately 300 books, including novels by Philip Roth and John Updike. During the winter of 1988, he moved to Vancouver with his wife and young son. Two years later, he decided to try his hand at creating pop-up books, and the legend "Griffin and Sabine" was born.



I've been reading through the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman and needed a break from the darkness, so I picked this off the shelf and devoured it in about an hour. It has been many many years since I last read it, and it was exactly the tonic I needed to the darkness of Sandman.

The story is both fantastic and mysterious. The characters are pretty light, but the plot and the artistry within the pages is wonderful.

Still exquisitely rendered illustrations, but with a truly boring plot whose characters feel contrived.
m.belljackson | 6 outras críticas | Sep 17, 2023 |
The end of the trilogy moves along more calm and mellow,
still with beautiful illustrations and another slow plot,
now involving a mysterious and unnecessary villain.
m.belljackson | 32 outras críticas | Sep 17, 2023 |
Images in this second book of the series are more frightening and Griffin and his Journey seem silly and over the top self-indulgent.

Last entires appear that they have both imagined themselves.
