Summary
The Arrival is a graphic novel styled wordless picture book about a migrant family's journey to a new and strange land. And being Shaun Tan, it's also a journey of the imagination. A tale of a migrant finding his way in a strange, new city told only through pictures -- beautiful, surreal, at times threatening pictures. With a monotone tint purposefully reminiscent of old photographs and a carefully produced album appearance that runs from cover to cover, The Arrival leaves allegory to the eyes of the beholder
Summary
In this wordless graphic novel, a man leaves his homeland and sets off for a new country, where he must build a new life for himself and his family
