The Arrival

By Shaun Tan and Shaun Tan

  • Paperback
  • £50.00

An extraordinary slipcase with the multi-awarding book, The Arrival, and a brand new book, Sketches from a Nameless Land.

The response to The Arrival has been overwhelming and it has been "translated" into many different languages. Such interest has led to a new book - Sketches from a Nameless Land.

Discover what inspired Shaun Tan to create the wordless tale which captures the universally understood concept of displacement, entirely through artwork. This new book is filled with the glorious words missing from the first book.
