Dubious Documents

A book by Nick Bantock.

Nick Bantock

From the creator of the bestselling Griffin & Sabine series comes a visual epistolary puzzle posed by a mysterious character named Magnus Berlin. Readers must study Berlin's introductory note, list of clues and 16 multifaceted notes and envelopes to decode cryptic anagrams, picturegrams, number puzzles and wordplay. When solved, each clue reveals one word — but the rest remains a mystery.

Packaged inside a folio with a tuck-in flap cover, spine stitching and all 16 envelopes bound, Dubious Documents is an art object, keepsake and puzzle in one treasured volume, and a distinctive gift or self-purchase for fans of puzzles, riddles and anyone who enjoys an exquisitely designed challenge.
