Creature

by Shaun Tan - £25.00  Walker Books Ltd (2022)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781529510720 | ISBN 10: 1529510724

A beautiful collection of paintings, drawings and reflections on creatures, our constant companions, from the masterful narrative artist Shaun Tan.
 
A creature does not necessarily represent one thing or another; it just is. A mysterious being in a mysterious world, much like you and me, trying to fit in, trying to be unique, or just trying to make sense of things as best we can, to exist. World-renowned artist Shaun Tan turns his hand to the theme of creatures. The first thing Shaun ever drew as a child was a creature, and they are still at the heart of his work. This volume collects together unseen and stand-alone drawings and paintings, along with rich and thoughtful commentary from Shaun on his inspirations.
 
Delving deep into the timeless allure of non-human creatures, and what they might tell us about our 'normal' human selves, this book is perfect for artists, writers and dreamers alike.
