Map of Days by Robert Hunter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Interesting! If you are looking for a linear story though, this will not be the book for you. Overall, I'd call the story a myth. One of creation and the other of the tides. Meanwhile, in between, there is the story of a boy who visits his eccentric grandfather who lives with many Grandfather clocks and sneaks away inside one of them every now and then. The art is fantastic! It's full of patterns both geometric and floral and has many mandella-like designs. The colour schemes follow the suggestive moods. The book is a feast for the eyes with an intriguing plot. The frames have been used as part of the design and some often contain only narrative. There are no speech bubbles rather the story is told through small blocks of narrative. A wonderful book for those looking for an abstract story that causes one to think.
