Shackleton's Journey

William Grill

About the book

Young illustrator William Grill brings us to a detailed visual narrative of Shackleton's journey to Antarctica. Grill's beautiful use of coloured pencils and vibrant hues places him somewhere on the artistic spectrum between Raymond Briggs and David Hockney and his fastidious cataloguing of every single detail of the expedition is nothing short of a Blacstock collection. He manages to evoke the atmosphere and intrepid excitement that would have surrounded the expedition with his impecably researched, detailed and atmospheric drawings. Children will love examining the exploded diagrams of the now peculiar provisions taken and the individual drawings of each sled dog and pack horse. The book takes the academic and historical information surrounding the expedition and reinterprets it for a young audience in a way that will capture their imaginations.
