Vespers is an evening prayer characterized by singing, mystery, and simplicity. Transplanting that mood onto the page, Secret Vespers is a set of single panel instalments, each one self-contained. They are not religious. Each one is drawn and written by Patrick Edwards-Daugherty.

Before Secret Vespers, Patrick studied theoretical physics, and then founded a software company, Pleiades, where he still has the best job in the world. He writes poetry and fiction, plays music, and roams the world looking for trouble.
