If you’re a fan of Shaun Tan, then you will not be able to resist this collection of Tan’s work, sketches and doodles. Filled with his amazing illustrations and artwork and with Shaun’s own commentary throughout. This collection is published like a genuine sketchbook and you get a real sense of the artist’s world and what drives and inspires him. Also included are previously unpublished illustrations not yet associated to a story. Tan is revealing in both his notes and images throughout. A real treat.
I find Tan’s work haunting, beautiful and honest so this book is a real treat; a rare insight into a very well respected artist.
