The Sign-Maker is a work of “graphic docufiction” that demonstrates how languages and signs reproduce conflict, colonial relations, and segregation. In addition, it foregrounds the function of spaces and monuments as “national topobiographies,” underscoring similarities between three different (post-)colonial areas. By highlighting maps and colonial uses of passports and passbooks, it also demonstrates its fictional characters’ diasporic fluidity and unrootedness.
