An endlessly intricate visual mystery
Nick Bantock's visual style is iconic in it's intricate 'messy drawer/scrapbook' aesthetic, and in this book he delivers a visual mystery for readers
In the midst of the 90s style of 'cluttered draw' imagery, The Egyptain Jukebox portrays 10 shelves in a cabinet, each centred around an Egyptain god. Readers are presented a single conundrum to solve: “Where do my worlds join?”.
In this picture-cum-puzzle book, every picture is full of clues which are designed to lead to the whereabouts of Hamilton Hasp, an eccentric millionaire who has disappeared. Containing a baffling mystery that reveals a connection between the ancient and contemporary worlds, The Egyptian Jukebox offers a ten-drawer "cabinet" of colorful artifacts, each with its own eerie story.
