This is the story of a girl and a boy and a lake. The girl wants only to impress her mother, and finds the perfect challenge to prove herself. The boy suffers a tragedy, becomes fixated with a lost memento and makes it his mission to find it. The water is where, one day, the two will meet. Cormorance is a story of an accidental encounter, an unbreakable bond, and the redemptive force of connecting with the natural world. A wordless, purely visual story, it is - like any work by the award-winning Nick Hayes - a book of the utmost beauty, and a wonder to hold in your hand.

He is the founding editor of Meat magazine, a periodical showcasing new writing, comics and illustration, and has won two Guardian Media awards.


This beautiful book is a reminder that hope can nest in unexpected surroundings. -- James Smart Guardian [The] master of the long-form comics... This is a picture book of an odd and eerie beauty. National Geographic Traveler [It] makes an eloquent case for what comics can say by refusing to say anything, at least with language... Obviously beautiful... The story is elegantly expressed by the form... I can't think of many non-graphic novels published this year that match the emotional force and formal deftness of [Cormorance]. -- James Kidd Literary Review
