Griffin and Sabine


Hoy os quería hablar de este delicado libro escrito e ilustrado (collages) por Nick Bantock

Griffin Moss is a poor artist, designer of postcards, living in a garret in London. He gets a love note from Sabine Strohem. She lives on Katie, one of the Sicmons, a chain of five islands in the South Pacific. She too is an artist, designs stamps for the impoverished government to sell to stamp collectors all over the world.

The way they find each other: she has visions of his art work. “When you draw or paint, I see what you are doing while you do it.” To prove it she tells him, “Last week while working on a head in chalk, you paused and lightly sketched a bird on the bottom corner of the paper.”

El libro es una maravilla! yo tuve la oportunidad de tenerlo en mis manos, y disfrutar de la preciosa correspondencia que Sabine y Griffin se van intercambiando durante la historia. Como véis, en algunas páginas puedes ver dentro del libro sobres con las cartas dentro, igualmente cuidadas y escritas a mano.
