This illustrated novel is full of luminous, vivid spreads, reminiscent of screen printed illustrations, in Jérémie Fischer‘s own inimitable style.
After dusk, the Night Watchman patrols the streets, assisted by birds on the rooftops, dogs in the lanes, and rats underground.
As the local policeman, the Night Watchman hunts down any intruder who threatens the peace and security of his city.
Jean-Baptiste Labrune’s magical story creates an eery, walled city where its inhabitants aren’t allowed to leave their homes after dark, for their own safety.
The story takes a dark turn and unearths betrayal, love and friendship.
A beautifully written philosophical story, full of suspense and intrigue coupled with the most prodigious artwork.
