About the Book
The project’s intention was not as an ‘art book’ but rather to tell anecdotes based on the imagery. Together with specialists Koen de Ceuster, Simon Cockerell and James Banfill the linocuts reveal elements of the lives of the country’s train conductors, steelworkers, weavers, farmers, scientists, and fishermen. The prints are an unparalleled testament to the talent of North Korea’s artists and the unique social, cultural, and political conditions in which they work.
