The Arrival

January 31st, 2009

The Arrival by Shaun TanI read another really interesting book recently too called The Arrival by Shaun Tan. Read is a relative term since there are actually no words in the story. It is gorgeously and quite meticulously illustrated in mono/sepia/golden tones, telling an intriguing sort of tale about immigration and just what the new world looks like to the new arrivals. It took me a few reads to fully get it (grok it) – to really understand what the author was getting at in the story. In all honesty, as it’s such a short tale, telling much of it will give it away. However, the lands, the architecture, the parable, the whole thing- beautiful and well worth the purchase. More about the book here: The Arrival.
