This week Annelouise share’s what she currently loves!
I have been loving Shaun Tan’s incredible illustration work for a while and have now decided to impose this love upon other people – particularly my fascination with The Arrival. I recently bought a copy of this book for my brother as a housewarming gift and although I suspect it is much more a projection of my own interests upon him- I am hoping he will be able to marvel at the thoughtfulness and skill that has gone into this stunning story. Shaun tan has masterfully created a beautiful and sometimes menacing symbolic world through his illustration, documenting one man’s story of immigration to a strange new land. What is truly amazing is that he does all this without words. Bloody impressive.
