Pretty book. Two color throughout. Kinda reminds me of THE PRINCESS BRIDE. Anyhow - “Often described as an alchemical allegory, John Crowley instead decided this is ‘the first science fiction novel.’ After all ‘it's fiction; it's about the possibilities of a science; and it's a novel.’ No matter what else it might be, it's definitely ‘one of the great outlandish stories in Western literature.’ With eight appropriately weird and fascinating black and white woodcuts by Theo Fadel.” #58794
