This book is really underrated and should be more widely read/available. I asked my local library to buy it (they often do this) and they said they couldn't. So I ordered it myself from the publisher, it took 2 minutes, and arrived in three days; what's with that? Talk about Hidden. Anyway, the art is just gorgeous, the story is thought-provoking and of great interest to me as an art practitioner slash human being.

This is a beautiful and incredibly touching little book that is going to stick with me a long time. I picked it from the library bookshelf at random and after the first page, had to sit down and keep reading. I read it in a single sitting, and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.

Hidden is a story that stuns through its simplicity. I read through the contained short comics in an hour or so. It is the story of an art worker who deals with people with disabilities, the lack of funding for her programs and the marginalisation of disabled people in society. It is incredibly subtle and as a result, beautiful. I highly recommend it, and Mirranda Burton is definitely a talent to watch.
