The Depository

The Depository (1994) was Andrzej Klimowski's first graphic novel, and it's a wordless, ambiguous tale of flying people with books for wings and the sinister organization that pursues them. These stills are from an animated adaptation from 2003 by Andrew Kavanagh, which can be found on YouTube. It's been said before but Klimowski's stark black and white imagery was much improved in linocuts for later books like The Secret and Horace Dorlan, and Kavanagh's film is actually closer to those works in style than the loose brush and ink drawings of the original.
