Product Description

This unique presentation of the best-selling, internationally acclaimed graphic novel THE ARRIVAL, and a new companion volume of commentary and developmental drawings, SKETCHES FROM A NAMELESS LAND, beautifully packages the two books within a traveller’s suitcase that also contains a limited edition numbered Shaun Tan print of an illustration from THE ARRIVAL.

This collector’s edition will fascinate anyone who has fallen under the spell of Shaun Tan s timeless story, and offers a revealing insight into the craft of one of Australia s most compelling author-illustrators.

THE ARRIVAL has become one of the most critically acclaimed books of recent years, a wordless masterpiece that describes a world beyond any familiar time or place. How did it come to be created, and what inspired its unique and captivating story?

In SKETCHES FROM A NAMELESS LAND, author Shaun Tan explains the origins of his ideas, using examples from early research and concept sketches through to finished artwork. In tracing this evolution, he sheds light on the silent language of images, the spirit of the migrant experience and the artist s creative journey.
