Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful piece of work. Tom Phillips has changed each page of a Victorian novel into a completely different object by embellishing each page with drawings, paintings and pasted photos and illustrations. Most of the text has been obscured by the artwork, leaving only certain words linked together to make new tales from the narrative of the old novel. It's a book that you can look through page by page in chronological order or just sample pages at random and enjoy just as much. It will surprise you and stimulate the visual senses. It is well printed and although it is a paperback it is nicely bound. If you don't already own this book I strongly recommend that you buy a copy.

Absolutely beautiful book, an amazing idea and an amazing print of it. The colours are beautiful and the size of the book is just perfect. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves this blacking out style of literature combined with artwork. I love to just drop in and out of the book when I feel like it. I shall be buying it for all my friends.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Simply, this is the most beautiful book I have ever seen. The narrative wends woozily through the pages, the vicissitudes of poor protagonist toge's misadventures coming in and out of focus, while the gorgeous illustrations jokily flirt with meanings. I can't think of a comparable reading experience.
