In this drawing artist Mike Wilks depicts, at the moment of its crumbling, the fantasy world of Pile, an extravagant place devoid of nature and its grace.
Wilks began writing and illustrating books in 1975. Soon after came Pile: Petals from St Klaed’s Computer, which paired Wilks’s intricate images with a poem by science fiction writer Brian W. Aldiss. Wilks rocketed to fame following publication of The Ultimate Alphabet in 1986, also publishing The Weather Works, The Ultimate Spot-the-Difference Book, The Ultimate Noah’s Ark.
