De Profundis HC (2011 Picturebox) comic books 2010-2012
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.
