Shaun Tan Signing
In Support of his new book, Tales from Outer Suburbia
Tuesday, October 28th, 5pm-7pm
@ The Beguiling,
601 Markham Street, Toronto
The Beguiling is proud to welcome Australia's Shaun Tan to Toronto, on tour for his new book Tales from Outer Suburbia. Despite being an accomplished and award-winning illustrator, Tan first came to the attention of graphic novel fans around the world for his epic, wordless graphic novel The Arrival.
Tales from Outer Suburbia is a fascinating hybrid storybook and graphic novel, showcasing Tan's gorgeous art through prose, comics, and gorgeous full-page illustrations. A collection of short stories to be enjoyed by readers from 6 to 60, Tales from Outer Suburbia is exactly the sort of book that could become anyone's favourite.
With The Arrival receiving incredible international acclaim, including being picked as The Comic Journal's best graphic novel of 2007, we're sure that Tan's visit to Toronto is eagerly anticipated.
The Beguiling would like to thank Tundra Books for their assistance with this signing.
