A beautiful new volume from Phaidon gives us a rare glimpse at life inside North Korea. Printed in North Korea: The Art of Everday Life in the DPRK, by Nicholas Bonner, presents a collection of prints the author has amassed over a quarter-century of his travels to a country that few get to visit. The 500 brilliantly reproduced prints show both the incredible skill of their makers and how fully the political message of the regime infiltrates their work.
Depicting every aspect of life inside the DPRK, the woodblock prints and lino-cuts in Printed in North Korea date from the 1950s to the present day. From images of industry, cultural traditions and holidays, the military, to the natural beauty of North Korea, if you are curious about almost any element of everyday life, you can find in the index of this comprehensive book.
