P.S. I read this as I was going through depression and while reading it gave me an escape from my pain and sadness. It gave me hope again.
I bought this and the second to try and get to know these two a little better. For me I feel like I really did. If you are curious about it and want to learn about them a little, this is an excellent way to get to know Dreamfinder and Figment. But don't take my word for it. I'll let you decide.
The book itself is beautiful. The cover art comes printed on a dust jacket; if you remove the dust jacket, the hardcover is a matte white with the black-and-grey artwork "Literature" by Andrew Gaskill. The pages are glossy and the colors are vibrant. The weight of the pages is a little less than I would have expected, but my guess is that it's the standard for comic books (I'm not an average collector), and it still feels like quality.
I received the book yesterday (August 10, 2016), and the entire book was shrink-wrapped, providing protection to the book and its dust jacket. I peeled off the plastic and quickly flipped through the perfect pages with joy, giving them a little sniff-sniff (come on, you know you do it, too); and then, the book having passed my initial tests with flying colors, I set it aside and returned to my "adult" life. Come midnight last night, as I lay awake in bed unable to sleep, I realized why: I was excited to read the Figment book. My inner child was restless.
I took my time and enjoyed the introduction, the story, and the artwork for a couple hours. (It definitely adds something if you can imagine Figment's lines in his voice!) And just let me say, this book brought out all the emotions that I was hoping it would: excitement, imagination, introspection, hope, playfulness, laughter...
If you're here, chances are, you're already a Figment fan or you know someone who is. You probably already understand how a silly little purple dragon with way-too-tiny wings can make you believe in yourself and in being creative and trying new things. I'm so glad I finally remembered how important this little guy was to me as an imaginative (and mischievous) 8-YO girl, and I think I would have appreciated this book at 8, 18, 28... and I plan on stocking up because I can't wait to share him with my own kids one day.
My favorite line from Figment: "Find the same spot in your mind where you found ME!" This book has helped me to do just that. :)
