Like the fragile hero in a jerky old movie, Albuman stumbles through an increasingly menacing land-scape. With the forest-dwelling Ovatia as his com-panion, he finally confronts the evil Albuminoid and is reunited with his own kind. A picture story book featuring photography, sculpture, water colour painting and jewellery.

In the days before there were hens or even chickens, there was an egg. With the atmosphere of a mediaeval tale, a touch of gothic horror and a shade or two of teenage mutant ninja turtles, Albuman's Quest combines photography, sculpture, watercolour painting and jewellery. The characters in this picture book to tantalise older readers were originally created from eggs, doll's eyes and antique cutlery. Like the fragile hero in a jerky old movie, Albuman stumbles through an increasingly menacing landscape. With the forest-dwelling bird, Ovatia, as his companion, he finally confronts the evil Albuminoid and is reunited with his own kind.
