Nicholas Gurewitch’s book Notes on a Case of Melancholia is about Death, who’s seeing psychoanalyst Dr. Edgar O. Wye. Death is in despair because his son, Little Death, isn’t showing the traits needed to carry on the family business. All told in rhyme, with a great etched graphical style.

Here’s author Nicholas Gurewitch’s description of the book:

The book will run about 42-50 pages long, and will be completely illustrated. Graphic novel “frames” will be used on occasion, but this will really be more of a picture book – deliberately similar to the short books of Edward Gorey, but with a character-driven plot. Though it has a pretty high body count, it is in essence a family story.

Notes on a Case of Melancholia is available in both physical and digital form, and there are perks with bookplates and such.
