5.0 out of 5 stars Visionary, captivating, August 6, 2013
This review is from: Journey (Hardcover)
Rarely has a book managed to distill so finely that primal sense of enchantment that characterizes the best of childhood, and which most of us eventually lose touch with, somehow. That Becker is able to recapture this enchantment using only images -- no words -- is testimony to his great power as an illustrator and storyteller. Journey is ravishing -- pure visual poetry -- and, in closing, leaves a faint, musical ache for the world it invokes. At the same time, it serves as an encouraging reminder that this world is within the reach of anyone willing to close their eyes and let their imagination wander. I salute the author. As the Times reported, this is a true 'masterwork,' and a stunning debut for an incredible talent.
