About the Illustrators
Based on the exhibition of postcards at the Biennial of Illustration, Bratislava, in 2017, curated by the International Centre for the Picture Book in Society. Over 50 illustrators from around the world have created postcards depicting birds, with images that send a powerful message about human migration, showing that cultures, ideas and imagination will always flow despite borders, barriers and bans.
The book is divided into themes of Departures, Long Journeys, Arrivals and Hope for the Future. The facsimile postcard text includes personal messages of hope from the illustrators, as well as quotes from writers including Maya Angelou, WB Yeats, John Clare, Anita Desai and Robert Macfarlane. Illustrators include Christopher Corr, Marie-Louise Gay, Piet Grobler, Petr Horacek, Isol, Jon Klassen, Neal Layton, PJ Lynch, Roger Mello, Jackie Morris, Jane Ray, Axel Scheffler and Shaun Tan.
