Abstract:

"Influenced by the likes of Jorge Luis Borges, Adolfo Bioy Casares and Francisco Coloane, Claudio Romo's work is highly original, blending literary fantasy with adventure in a way that is never cliché or expected. Equally talented as both writer and illustrator for his works, he believes that the 'two forms of narrations' combine to create 'a single fabric: ourselves.' In A Journey in the Phantasmagorical Garden of Apparitio Albinus, we explore the flora and fauna and other wondrous phenomena of a miraculous garden filled with denizens as small as symbiotic insects, made up of both plant and animal life forms, and as large as a planet, Atanasius Uterinus, that contains a sun within its very core. According to Romo, the 'book' best represents the human race, 'a place where different traditions and kinds of knowledge interact.' Who are we to argue"--From publisher's website.
