James Jarvis 'De Profundis' BookAcclaimed British illustrator and toy designer James Jarvis releases his first graphic novel in
Acclaimed British illustrator and toy designer James Jarvis releases his first graphic novel in five years. Titled De Profundis, the graphic novel follows a beaked artist’s quest through a wilderness to arrive at an abandoned city. Jarvis, who came to prominence during the soft-toy revolution, studied at the Royal College of Art at the University of Brighton before creating his immensely popular Amos Toys. While some may consider De Profundis a deviation from previous projects, enthusiasts and curators alike can appreciate the juxtaposition of the novel’s personal narrative themes and signature James Jarvis artwork. The 80-page narrative is slated for a November 1, 2011 release date through PictureBox Publishers.
