In late l991 and early 1992, at the time of the first Intifada, Joe Sacco spent two months with the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, travelling and taking notes. Upon returning to the United States he started writing and drawing Palestine, which combines the techniques of eyewitness reportage with the medium of comic-book storytelling to explore this complex, emotionally weighty situation. He captures the heart of the Palestinian experience in image after unforgettable image, with great insight and remarkable humour.

The nine-issue comics series won a l996 American Book Award. It is now published for the first time in one volume, befitting its status as one of the great classics of graphic non-fiction.

Review:

"A political and aesthetic work of extraordinary originality, quite unlike any other in the long, often turgid and hopelessly twisted debates that have occupied Palestinians, Israelis, and their respective supporters... With the exception of one or two novelists and poets, no one has ever rendered this terrible state of affairs better than Joe Sacco" (Edward Said)

"The bar is set extremely high when it comes to graphic books and the Middle East: one thinks of Joe Sacco's Palestine" (Observer)

"Palestine is a unique take on the Isreali/Palestinian conflict... The illustrator/reporter provides a unique perspective: there is an intimacy to Sacco’s interviews that cannot be translated into photography and text. His drawings make his subjects relatable to in a way that I think is difficult to achieve with a photograph." (Bleeding Cool)

"Palestine is utterly compelling, and as affecting as the work of any war photographer or poet." (Annie Forbes Varsity)

Book Description:

The landmark work of comics journalism - by the author of Safe Area: Gorazde.
