Hobonichi Techo Weeks - Shaun Tan: Arrival - 2021 January Start

The Children's book author Shaun Tan's work draws you in with warming, delicate drawings where reality and fantasy coexists. This techo cover features one of his most renowned works, Arrival (published in 2006).

Arrival is a graphic novel about migration that took Tan five years to create. Totally wordless, each page pulls readers further and further into its world.

The illustration of this Weeks book is of the town where the protagonist arrives, and is one of the most iconic scenes in Arrival. The scenery seems fantasy-esque but exudes a nostalgic feel the same time. As you spend your time to carefully observe the detailed drawing, you may feel as if you're building up your own story in your mind, even if you have never read the book before. The back cover features the scene where the cute yet interesting creature walks with a child. There’s also Shaun Tan’s signature on the bottom. The year 2021 is foil stamped in silver.

When you order this Hobonichi Techo Weeks, you’ll receive a clear, adhesive corner pocket you can stick anywhere you like.
