They say you can get lost in a good book.
But it’s worse to get lost in a bad one.

The Bookbinder weaves shadowplay, paper art, puppetry, and music into a riveting, dark fairy tale in the vein of Coraline and Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. An original and inventive one-man tour de force for curious children and adventurous adults.
