  • I am not sure what I think of Nick Bantock, but let me just launch in. He seems to be wildly popular for art boxes with love letters and other artifacts. This is an art box with a 48 page booklet written about an imaginary country, its history and customs and language and so on. There's a souvenir stamp sheet and 15 postcards to send from Capolan. I like multi-genre and multi-modal projects, and this is one. Textured story. And I think in that sense, as a collagist, and illustrator, and creator [...]


  • Beautiful book of Bantock's art, disguised as a souvenir book put out by the post office of an imagined country. It contains a stamp, several postcards and a booklet inside of a box and the booklet contains the brief on the Capolan history and people. He does such a good job of packaging it that it feels weird to review it. It feels like a souvenir.


  • Wonderfully illustrated, the art of Nick Bantock is mesmerizing and the philosoply of the Capolanians would be so nice to live with. Unusual format that is a visual delight.
