The acclaimed British illustrator James Jarvis (born 1970) 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.
