“You discover how confounding the world is when you try to draw it. You look at a car, and you try to see its car-ness, and you’re like an immigrant to your own world. You don’t have to travel to encounter weirdness. You wake up to it.”
- Shaun Tan
- What drives so many to leave everything behind and journey alone to a mysterious country, a place without family or friends, where everything is nameless and the future is unknown?
- This silent graphic novel by Shaun Tan is the story of every migrant, every refugee, every displaced person, and a tribute to all those who have made the journey.
- Shaun Tan's The Arrival and Sketches from a Nameless Land Suitcase Collector's Edition is a limited edition of 1500.
- This deluxe clamshell box set opens like a suitcase revealing a worn vintage pattern interior, and includes hardcover special edition copies of both The Arrival and its companion title Sketches from a Nameless Land, along with a signed first release print of an illustration taken from The Arrival.
