This stunning visual novel unfolds in a series of postcards and letters, all brilliantly illustrated with whimsical designs, bizarre creatures, and darkly imagined landscapes. Inside the book, Griffin and Sabine's letters are to be found nestling in their envelopes, permitting the reader to examine the intimate correspondence of these inexplicably linked strangers. This truly innovative novel combines a strangely fascinating story with lush artwork in an altogether original format.

Griffiin & Sabine, the most creative and discussed bestseller of 1991, left readers on the edge of a precipice. In the second volume of this inventive trilogy, they begin—along with Griffin—the fall. Told through strangely beautiful postcards and richly decorated letters, that actually must be taken from their envelopes to be read, the story is also culled from the sketchbook and diary kept by the possible unreal Sabine.
