A collection of vivid and powerful stories drawn on the front lines of migration by award-winning artist George Butler. Signed edition. 

For thousands of years humans have moved around the world, to seek a better life, to flee disaster or to escape war. Migration is a fact of life - but it is hugely misunderstood. In striking and intimate illustrations, award-winning artist George Butler introduces us to the people behind the headlines. Drawings made on front lines, in refugee camps and on the move vividly capture stories of leaving home, travelling into the unknown and trying to make a new life. These powerful portraits of migration are a timely reminder of the humanity we all share and our universal need to seek safety and a better life. A stunning, illuminating and sensitive look at stories that deserve to be told.

"Some picture books are for all ages. This is a remarkable example, an artist's sketchbook drawn over ten years in the refugee camps of 12 countries, with text that tells the poignant stories of people in transit." - The Sunday Times

The Story

The Author

George Butler is an award winning artist and illustrator specialising in travel and current affairs. His drawings, done in situ are in pen, ink and watercolour.  Over the last ten years his desire to record scenes in ink rather than with a camera has meant he has witnessed some extraordinary moments. In 2019 we ran a trip with George to Iraqi Kurdistan. For more unique travel opportunities please email us on explore@ishkar.com.

"We seem to have lost the art of the observational reporter with a sketchbook to photography, Butler's memorable images show that a closely observed drawing is not just worth a thousand words but hundreds of photographs" - A A Gill
