I RECEIVED THIS BOOK FOR FREE IN RETURN FOR AN HONEST REVIEW:
In 2013, Shane Koyczan, a spoken word artist, uploaded a video entitled ‘To This Day’ on his YouTube channel. The video was a visual and spoken word collaboration between Koyczan and over 80 animation artists from all around the world. The video has been viewed over 14 million times.
The poem is written for anyone that is being bullied, anyone that has witnessed bullying or anyone that may be bullying somebody else. It speaks of the things people are often bullied about, the feeling of loneliness that accompanies bullying and the long lasting effects that bullying can have on people.
The book is a continuation of the original video project, and comprises the poem, written by Koyczan, with original artwork from 30 artists from all around the world, from Germany to Japan, Peru to Canada, Australia to the UK.
Having been bullied myself, I found the book extremely empowering, and recommend to absolutely everyone.
Such an outstanding work of stunning, original artwork and literary excellence.
I will be very disappointed if Shane Koyczan doesn’t produce any more books like this one, I think it would be a great shame to me and everybody else on the planet.
