The book tells the story of planet Entropia through stamps. It's like those limited edition collectible stamp books published by post offices from time to time, except the stamps here are larger and unusable (unless you're on Entropia). The 128-page book is slightly larger than a DVD case but presented horizontally.
Inside are 60 stamps created with ink and watercolour. That's one stamp per page printed on a black background, with the accompanying text on the page beside. It's written like a travel guide or postcard, touching on topics like famous produce in areas, the culture of inhabitants, historical events, failed government experiments (e.g. float cities with balloons), snapshots of life and other very interesting stories.
The art is beautiful, but it's the stories that really give the book depth. It's positively creative and enjoyable to read. Highly recommended.
There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

This is the coolest illustration book ever! Through beautifully illustrated stamps the author tells the story of an imaginary world named Entropia. I love all the characters, especially Queen Pingo and the "artwark" Andrew. This book is a small treasure!:)
