Inhuman Traffick

Inhuman Traffick by Rafe Blaufarb is the third graphic history I've illustrated for Oxford University Press.

The book tells the story of the slave ship Neirsée and its passengers, crew and human 'cargo', and through it the history of the 19th century transatlantic slave trade, the naval and political fight against the slavers, and the personal tragedies caused by the trade. Read more about the book at the OUP website, and look inside at Amazon.
