The Arrival begins with a heartbreaking parting, a man gives his wife and daughter a last kiss and boards a steamship to cross the ocean.
We follow his struggles being away from home, and entering into a new life where not much is understood or explained. The Arrival tells a universal story of immigration.
It was a little hard at first depicting each picture without text, but the more I got into the story, the more I understood.
This book is a wordless story told through capturing images. It is beautiful. Beautifully harrowing, haunting, and compelling.
It managed to capture solitude, wistfulness, and hopefulness in a little over 100 pages, and it was magical.
