Welcome to the world of Frank, an 11-year-old generic anthropomorph who lies in a force-laden landscaped called the Unifactor. Curious and naive, but not smart or noble, Frankand his semi-subservient housedog-like godling inhabit a unique and hallucinatory mindscape, told in almost entirely wordless, brilliant candy coloured stories that allure people of all ages. Here, in one lavish volume are every single one of these hypnotic fables - a decorative object and a repository of storytelling genius.

The world that Jim Woodring has created is unique and very different. His drawing is precise and clear so you have no difficulty understanding what shapes and forms you are looking at, but it isn't a place you've ever been to before. Fortunately, it's just barely familiar enough to be understandable and, also fortunately, it's also so different that it's totally fascinating.
The book consists of a number of short stories or episodes collected from the Frank comic book series. There is no dialogue but Woodring is brilliant at telling a story with pictures. Some stories have an understandable plot and some don't. At least on the conscious level they don't. They often still feel like a story even though you would be hard-pressed to explain why.
