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. Also, I contributed a short essay about the Declaration at the end of the book.
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 in association with Amnesty International on the 60th Anniversary of the Declaration’s proclamation.
