I haven’t looked at any of Delisle’s work before and I have to say that the art is amazing. He uses two hues for most panels—black and then a second hue at varying saturations—but sometimes throws in splashes of other colours. Delisle uses this technique to bring the reader’s attention to specific details or to indicate loud noises. The visual effect is lovely. Delisle’s lines are simple, his page layouts straightforward. The simple visual storytelling is what makes his reportage so impressive […] Jerusalem is a beautiful book—in either language, I’m sure—and I think we can expect to see it on the final nominee list next week.
