A collection of vivid and powerful stories drawn on the front lines of migration by award-winning artist George Butler.

For thousands of years humans have moved around the world, to seek a better life, to flee disaster or to escape war. Migration is a fact of life – and one of the most pressing issues of our time. In striking and intimate illustrations, award-winning artist George Butler introduces us to the people behind the headlines. Drawings made on front lines, in refugee camps and on the move vividly capture stories of leaving home, travelling into the unknown and trying to make a new life. These powerful portraits of migration are a timely reminder of the humanity we all share and our universal need to seek safety and a better life.

A stunning, illuminating and sensitive look at stories that deserve to be told.

Industry Reviews
Some picture books are for all ages. This is a remarkable example, an artist's sketchbook drawn over ten years in the refugee camps of 12 countries, with text that tells the poignant stories of people in transit. * The Sunday Times *
