4.0 out of 5 stars It was a gift, and it's a little enigmatic, 11 Jan 2012

This review is from: Exquisite Book (Hardcover)
I read a review for this book in an up-market glossy magazine and they really extolled the virtues of The Exquisite Book, so I decided it would make a nice Christmas present for my wife.

I have to say that, unfortunately, she is finding it a little inaccessible.

That's okay though: A little mystery is good in life and the fact that this book is not easily understood adds to it's unique qualities. These days we all seem to crave instant gratification. The Exquisite Book does not provide this. It is challenging and ambiguous and it's different every time you open it up and explore.

In some ways it reminds my of Godfrey Regio's three movies, none of which had any dialogue and very little explanation, just a series of images that may, or may not have had intrinsic and deeper connections. The Exquisite Book is the same. It will mean something different to everyone who picks it up and delves into its pages.

So it's a curiosity. And that's very good.
