Sketches From A Nameless Land
The Art of The Arrival
'The Arrival' by Shaun Tan is a story told through wordless pictures of a migrant's journey to an unknown and nameless land. The fact that it is wordless allows its 'readers' to create their own narratives and provide their own interpretation and answers to any questions the story might generate.
'Sketches from a nameless land' is a companion book to 'The Arrival' and gives insight into the processes that Tan went through in completing the book.
