Sinopsis:

An illustrated tour de force and surreal dream-come-to-life for all those who love art, passion, fine wine, and Griffin and Sabine.

An island republic located in the Mid-Atlantic, somewhat south of Bermuda, between the Sea of Clouds and the Sea of the Unseen, the Republic of Dreams is populated by all those who have an instinctive dislike of the narrow limitations of common sense ― dreamers, artists, eccentrics, and poets. They love love, youth, old age, beauty, splendor, wisdom, generosity, music, song, the feast, and the dance.

In this spectacular dream landscape ― where few places are not commemorated by an artist's inspiration, a philosopher's wit, or a poet's insight ― author/artist/narrator G. Garfield Crimmins rediscovers his alter ego, Victor La Nuage, and his sensuous lover, Nadja La Claire. Together, with the help of the elusive Dr. Prometheus, they seek to evade the machinations of the life-denying, imagination-stifling enemy of the Republic of Dreams and its citizens: the armed and dangerous League of Common Sense.

Joyously illustrated in Deco-Dada-Surrealist spirit, and complete with souvenir maps, telegrams, postcards, a poetic license, and a passport for return voyages, The Republic of Dreams gives escape literature a good name. A glorious affirmation of the dreamer within, it is a great gift for one's inner self and for many kindred spirits.

  • "I know there will always be an island far away."―André Breton
  • Postcards, passport, poetic license, and maps ready-for-framing included
