Map of Days

Map of Days

Richard can’t stop thinking about the clock. He lies in bed each night listening to its tick-tocking, to the pendulum’s heavy swing. Why does his granddad open its old doors in secret and walk into the darkness beyond? One night, too inquisitive to sleep, Richard tiptoes from his bed, opens the cherry wood doors, and steps inside . . .

Robert Hunter's first comic was The New Ghost. He has contributed editorial illustration work to The New York Times Sunday Review.

  • Elliott Edwards

    A very enjoyable book with a nice mythology. Certainly short, I read it in under 20 minutes and that was taking time to look at the stylised illustrations which really captures the light and movement ...

  • Kim

    Most graphic novels with picture-book sensitivity make a mistake to explain everything in words & to merely illustrate the words. This work does not.The Guardian's review of the work is well written. ...

    A modern take on origin stories. In a newly formed universe nine siblings called forth from the void cocoon themselves against the chaos of a newborn creation. One sibling proves to be more curious an...
