The Unforgotten Coat, by Frank Cottrell Boyce
For a very brief book (under 100 pages, with many photographs), I found it strangely moving. The story lives on minimalism, with Boyce preferring to do less with his words and more with the images. The book's design (like a notebook with lined-paper pages) and enigmatic photographs are striking and integral to the story. The overall product is effective and original.
