TODAY'S BIG NUGGET: Refugee Stories in Illustrations

The Road to Germany: $2400 from Foreign Policy Magazine
"Some set out on a complicated journey to Europe with a crude graphic — a flowchart of the route from Turkey to Germany — as a guide. In its rudimentary geometry, refugees saw an impossible dream. In its illustrated stick figures, kicking their heels upon reaching the final destination, they saw themselves. They allowed an image, powerful and meditative in its simplicity, to shape their personal stories."
