The Viewer free pdf Young Tristan, a curious boy who rescues all sorts of objects from the rubbish dump, finds an old Viewmaster in its elaborate box, complete with a set of disks.

The book is full of metaphors and symbols of seeing and watching, circularity and never-endingness, in a complex, fantastical tale,.
