Product description


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 PalestineObserver

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
