5.0 out of 5 stars Too bad it wasn't thicker June 27 2009
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Length: 0:15 Mins
The book tells the story of planet Entropia through stamps. It's like those limited edition collectible stamp books published by post offices from time to time, except the stamps here are larger and unusable (unless you're on Entropia). The 128-page book is slightly larger than a DVD case but presented horizontally.

Inside are 60 stamps created with ink and watercolour. That's one stamp per page printed on a black background, with the accompanying text on the page beside. It's written like a travel guide or postcard, touching on topics like famous produce in areas, the culture of inhabitants, historical events, failed government experiments (e.g. float cities with balloons), snapshots of life and other very interesting stories.

The art is beautiful, but it's the stories that really give the book depth. It's positively creative and enjoyable to read. Highly recommended.

There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth all the entropian cents you can afford March 15 2006
By ConArtGuy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I think this book is totally worth the full price. First of all, it's hardback, which is rare for these kind of books. And second of all, it's in beautiful full color and you can tell the artist was very dedicated and creative in creating these characters, creatures, and stories in this book. Plus, there aren't a lot of concept art books out there with actual narratives, which is a pleasant change and makes the book appealing to less enthusiastic fans of the genre. If I had an extra copy, I'd consider tearing the pages out to use as posters on my wall. I know that's not the point, but the stamps in this book are almost too cool to sit in a book all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book March 19 2006
By Anna Goldstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Bought this book as a gift for a friend but then ended up keeping it for myself.

The fantastic story and beautiful illustrations felt like a mix between Nick Bartock's Griffin and Sabine and Miyazaki's Spirited Away.

This is most inspiring fantasy book I read this year!:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Charming May 25 2006
By Tree - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Even though this book, at first glance, appears to be an art book, there is a very charming story woven into the "stamp" descriptions, as well. Each page features an illustration of a stamp from the imaginary realm of "Entropia" and a description of the event or history the stamp is commemorating. I read this book in two sittings, only because I had an appointment to keep that tore me away from such a beautiful book. Once finished, this book left me with a strong desire to read and see more of Christian Lorenz Scheurer's "Entropia".
