Bringing together 31 world-renowned artists, We Are All Born Free is a fully illustrated, simplified adaptation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, established to cultivate world peace in the wake of the Second World War.

Published in association with Amnesty International to mark the 60th anniversary of the declaration, the collection leads readers through each of its 30 articles, the full resonance of which is beautifully realised by the accompanying illustrations.

Children and adults will recognise the work of their favourite artists and discover new ones as they gain valuable and long-lasting insight into the rights that 'belong to everyone, whatever our differences.'

With the unique styles of Axel Scheffler, Peter Sis, Satoshi Kitamura, Alan Lee, Polly Dunbar, Jackie Morris, Debi Gliori, Chris Riddell and many more, the role of the declaration in shaping the modern world has never been more boldly presented.

  • Simplified text helps younger readers develop an understanding of this momentous document.
  • Rich and varied illustrations by 31 internationally recognised artists, including children's illustrators, painters and political activists.
  • Includes a helpful index at the back to match artists with articles.
  • All royalties from the sale of this book are donated to Amnesty International.
Actor David Tennant and John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas , provide forewords explaining how the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is more than an era-defining document: it is a collection of 'rules for the world to live by', and We Are All Born Free 'might be the most important [book] that you ever own.'
