Shaun Tan's

Metropolis

Pictura is a stunning range of black-and-white art to collect and colour, for ages 9 to 90.

Metropolis is a mind-blowing creation myth from the inimitable Shaun Tan. Industry is born from an egg as other animals and plants look on. As it grows, metal trades metal, towns march and skyscrapers smoke, until all converge in a powerful, violent metropolis.

About the illustrator

Shaun Tan internationally adored books include The Red Tree, The Arrival, The Rabbits and Tales from Outer Suburbia. He directed an Academy Award-winning short film of his book, The Lost Thing. Shaun won the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in 2011.
