What comes before the final product? An enjoyable behind the scenes peek at Shaun Tan's work - sketches, doodles, and other bits from his notebooks.

Sadly, my doodles are usually better than my paintings.

In this book, Tan shows that doodling can be real art. The sketches in this notebook are like a first draft of Tan's amazing imagination.

The book also has fully developed drawings but no narrative. Even so, he creates a kind of cohesive alternative world.
