The cartoonist/book designer/writer/genius Seth, calls his book George Sprott a “picture novella”.
Whatever it should be called, it is a slightly mysterious and moving story, told in classic cartoon style.
For every important building in the small town that is the central location for the story, Seth has constructed a cardboard model and the photos of the buildings are interspersed throughout the book.
It is a triumphant marriage of words and image and you will not believe that you can get this beautiful object for the price that is on the sticker.
