Nick Bantock captivated millions with his New York Times bestseller Griffin & Sabine. The Venetian is his latest magical tale and the first in a series of digital books and Apps re-imagined for the iPad™. Slide you finger across the navigation bar to find a page, and explore over 50 scintillating illustrations, whimsical animations, and special audio moments as you’re immersed in an email correspondence between San Francisco art conservator, Sara Wolfe, and Renaissance merchant, Niccolo Dei Conti. Combining Bantock’s signature blend of art and storytelling, The Venetian is a compelling mix of modern technology and alchemy, culminating in a reunion over 500 years in the making.

Nick Bantock has sold over 5 million books in 13 different languages, including the New York Times bestselling Griffin & Sabine series which spawned a new genre in publishing. Admired worldwide for his epistolary novels and incredible artistry, Bantock has also written for numerous international newspapers and magazines, won a lifetime BAFTA for the CDROM Ceremony of Innocence, and created artwork for over 300 books.

Customer Reviews

An amazing reading experience

I've long been a fan of Nick Bantock's work. So as soon as I saw this edition for iPad, I had to experience it. I've enjoyed reading my kindle for a few years now, but this interactive medium experienced though tablet technology is destined to become the new consumption standard. Thanks to Nick for embracing the medium and providing yet another great reading experience.

A very impressive start

In creating with this media. There were some areas that could have been given a bit more attention, some grammar that was maybe supposed to be character errors?, or were overlooked by the editors?. I very much look forward to more ebooks from Bantock and would definitely recommend this to others.


I have been a fan for many years and was delighted to find this iPad app. It truly takes all that the iPad has to offer to a new level. I cannot wait to see the next release. Thank you so much for your creativity and wisdom.
