Can you name this book?

About 10 years ago, a friend of mine received a book as a gift. It was a series of (fictional, I think) love letters written between a man and a woman, but the book itself contained envelopes and letters written on different types of stationary and such. Kind of a multimedium format. I believe the title had both of the characters names in it. Does this really vague description ring a bell with anyone?

Best answer: Griffin & Sabine, I think?

Best answer: Was it the Griffin & Sabine series by Nick Bantock?

Be sure to check out the Egyptian Jukebox by the same author. It's a fantastic puzzle-in-a-book.

Man I loved those books. I had them when I was in college and we'd pass them around. There is something great about being able to take the letter out of the envelope and read it.

Wow, not more than 2 or 3 months ago the orginal book crossed my mind.

I could remember receiving it as a gift, and thinking it was great, but I couldn't remember for the life of me where it was or what it was called. I'm definitely gonna be ordering me another copy ASAP.

This is why I love MeFi.

Incidently, the book became a very cool CD ROM (released by Peter Gabriel's company). Sadly, it doesn't run on Windows XP so I have no way of enjoying it anymore.

davebush, have you tried compatability mode? I've had a lot of success with it for older programs.
