This book is a celebration of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights. Through illustration, I aimed to transform a legal document into an enjoyable little book, and to evoke the timelessness, passion and power of this remarkable document.
Originally published as a hardcover edition by Allen & Unwin, in association with Amnesty International, the book is now available as a handy paperback edition.

I started this project when I could not find a copy of the Declaration of Human Rights in print anywhere (except as a poster). It occurred to me that the Declaration was widely revered but rarely ever read, and I tried to think of a way to make this document more easily available and accessible. The result is this small book, which was first published on the 60th Anniversary of the Declaration’s proclamation.
