Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"A starkly beautiful, wordless graphic novel about the end of the world by the cult artist and long-time Radiohead collaborator. A wild seascape, a distant island, a full moon. Gradually the island grows nearer until we land on a primeval wilderness, rich in vegetation and huge, strange beasts. Time passes and man appears, with clubs, with spears, with crueler weapons still--and things do not go well for the wilderness. Civilization rises as towers of stone and metal and smoke choke the undergrowth and the creatures that once moved through it. This is not a happy story and it will not have a happy ending. Working in his distinctive, monochromatic linocut style, Stanley Donwood carves out a mesmerizing, stark parable of environmental disaster and the end of civilization"-- Provided by publisher.
