Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City
Delisle, Guy. Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City. Drawn and Quarterly, 2012.
Delisle chronicles the year his family spent in Jerusalem, including descriptions of daily life as well as the struggles of different ethnic groups who want the same space. The illustrations are well done, the dialog and text flows easily, and the color scheme is appropriate and well-chosen. I'm not a big fan of travel stories, but I did enjoy this one.
