THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS
As we approach the 60th anniversary of the signing of the declaration of these rights one of Australia's leading book publishers, Allen & Unwin, has published in conjunction with Amnesty International, the first ever illustrated book of The Universal Declaration.
The illustrations by Michel Streich are quite charming and provide a beautiful and fresh interpretation of this important and remarkable document. Sreich was born in Germany, worked in London for several years, but since 200 has lived in Sydney where his work has appeared on The Bulletin, The Australian Financial Review and other newspapers and magazines. He has also illustrated a number of other books.
