The final volume of the Extraordinary Correspondence of Griffin & Sabine.
It seems that each cannot exist in the presence of the other. Yet neither can continue without the presence of the other. And so, in this final volume of the Griffin & Sabine trilogy, they struggle against the mysterious forces that keep them apart. Time is running out: Sabine's crystalline visions of Griffin's artwork grow cloudy and dim and a threatening stranger begins to appear everywhere she goes. 'The Golden Mean' is the tale of Griffin and Sabine's journey towards one another, sometimes dreamy, sometimes desperate, sometimes nightmarish. The golden mean - the harmony of perfect balance - is what they seek in the haunting conclusion of this extraordinary correspondence.
Told in he compelling style of the first two best-selling volumes of the trilogy, 'The Golden Mean' allows readers to open richly decorated envelopes and draw forth intricately illustrated letters, to decipher the quirky handwritten postcards with their macabre and magical artwork , to indulge in other words, in the wonderfully illicit activity of reading someone else's mail.

I'm reviewing these two together because I read them totally out of order. leaving me with little idea of story quality. I'd read Griffin and Sabine years ago and loved it - the artwork, the interactivity of it, and the way it ended mysteriously. A couple of years ago I acquired these two books at...
Weak ending but otherwise as good as the first two. Love the artwork and the premise is very clever.
Very cool book.. But mostly for the art and the way you read it through letters and postcards. The way that you take the letters out of real envelopes? Well, thats just pure genius! Loved it!
Ooooh! Cue the Twilight Zone theme. And check your letter box... :-DThis one has the best artwork of the trilogy.
