The Secret, Paperback



The metamorphosis of daily reality into a dark and frightening dream world.

This is another disturbing novel without words by the Polish artist-illustrator of The Depository.

The narrative is rendered entirely as a sequence of 300 pages of compelling drawings and photo-montages.

The Secret projects an unsettling story about a young woman and her two children who vanish from their apartment one evening, leaving a distraught husband to follow a trail of sinister signs and traces left by their abductors.

There is something alarming and almost occult in the forces at work in the background, and a turning point in the mystery is a giant camera obscura which ultimately envelops everything.

The Secret leaves a stream of surreal images and ideas in the visual memory and the mind.
