De Profundis HC (2011 Picturebox) comic books
1st printing. Story and art by James Jarvis. The acclaimed British illustrator James Jarvis unveils his first new narrative in five years. This highly anticipated graphic novel follows a beaked artist who travels through a wilderness to arrive at an abandoned city. Wandering the empty streets there, he encounters a mysterious, priestly being who commissions him to decorate a temple to nameless gods. De Profundis might be considered a departure from Jarvis' previous projects; in this book, he has constructed a purely personal narrative with artwork that combines his interest in medieval woodcuts and Dutch De Stjil. Hardcover, 8-in. x 11-in., 64 pages, full color. Cover price $19.95.
