Once upon a 1871...

- The Napoleonic Empire established itself as the most powerful country in the world.
- The Library of Babel contained and protected the well-being of all books ever written, as well as several alternative versions of each of them.
- Words, when properly used, could deceive sensorial perception, and Aberrant books could turn fiction into reality and reality into fiction.
- Friedrich came across a book he wasn't looking for, but everyone else wanted. Shenanigans ensued.


Contains: nonsense, anachronisms, literary references, an ironic narrator, a little bit of steampunk, a little bit of science, traces of romance and a lot of family drama.

Hello

I've been wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet

You guys- I swear I've managed to procrastinate finishing this exact page since August... anyways, from next week on: Freshly drawn pages! Probably colored in sepia! The story moves on!
I'm so sorry!
My finals are finally over, but I've had a pretty awful artist block/ guilt over not learning enough all this past month... I hope to have a new page finished by next week. Please keep looking forward to more updates!

@Helix_luco: It's been changed, mostly because I judge your understanding of the English language to be better than mine *laughs*. As tempting as it sounds to repurpose the vest into a cuddly teddy bear, librarians' vests are the sort of garment you don't want to mess around with- as a librarian, you take pride in it, and cases of damage and lost are not tolerated. Penalizations will apply.

'undisputable' might fit better than 'irrevocable' there, since vests can be burned or the cloth could be repurposed into a teddy bear.

Hello! Long time no update!
The reason I've been procrastinating on aleph is...well, I've been pretty busy with my studies and my other webcomic is much more easier to work on... I've also been reconsidering is comic format is even an adequate form to tell this story... anyways, I'll try to keep on the one page a week-pace I had before the hiatus, but I can't promise colorpages for the time being. I want to focus on advancing the story and catch up with the time I've lost not working on this...

@Helix_luco: Fixed the bubble, didn't fix the reading pace, thought. Think me lazy, but right now moving forward with the story is more important for me x__x. That historical skit is absolutely hilarious and it does reflect the relationship between the lady and his valet rather well *laughs*

This page is an absolute disaster...
Well, in case you might be wondering why so much delay for such little result: First, I had decided to take the first half of November to finish a few pending commissions I had over at deviantart. Second, I got really sick. Like, really, really sick. Like this is the worst I've felt in a long time kind of sick.
But anyways, you're not here to hear me complain about my RLIssues, so let's get this story moving!

harharhar, can you spot the two pop cultural references on this page?
Anyways, books! Let's talk about books! And references, too. See, I recently started reading The Marriage Plot by J. Eugenides. I pretty much have to read it sitting by the computer so I can google up all the literary references I'm not getting. Goodness, it makes me feel so silly. Also, my list of must reads keeps growing like mold on a forgotten break sandwich. Mmmhmmm, disgusting.

@Kiri Kitsune: Thanks, I'm glad you like it! Madame Westerhüsen is actually a disaster when it comes to fashion, so she just trust the good judgement of her valet. However, she does buy her own shoes. Lots and lots of them.
