#19 The Museum At Purgatory

Great in concept, average in execution. Nick Bantock (of Griffin and Sabine fame) does romance far better than he does metaphysics, or at least, I'm so jaded and overread in the metaphysics department that non-academic writing in the area is no longer accessible. Visually the book was detailed and original, I found myself enjoying the artistic worth of the images over the text. The strongest writing in the book centered around a story of love wasted (and then lost, and then found - sort of), which was momentarily breath-taking. The disconnect with this book was clearly a case of "right book, wrong reader".
