Product Details


“Guestbook reveals Shapton as a ventriloquist, a diviner, a medium, a force, a witness, a goof, and above all, a gift. One of the smartest, most moving, most unexpected books I have read in a very long time.” – Rivka Galchen

“Leanne Shapton has a way of making books entirely new, surreal, and uncanny, always experimenting with the ways image and text can be mixed to tell new stories, in new ways. Guestbook is a delicious haunting and leaves one with a chill of recognition for how we live as ghosts in this distant, distracted, and image-obsessed time.” – Sheila Heti 

Praise for Leanne Shapton:

“Shapton writes as confidently as she draws….Her prose frequently has the density of poetry.” –Dwight Garner, The New York Times

“It looks like Shapton can succeed at whatever she puts her mind to….She is no doubt a creative powerhouse, one who puts words and pictures together with a quiet force that comes only from solid, dedicated practice.” —Los Angeles Times

“Whenever I come across something of Leanne Shapton’s–an illustration in The New York Times, or the wooden books she makes–I feel like I have found a hidden treasure.” –Amy Sedaris, author of I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence
