'A unique book of illustrations that is surprising in its color, beauty, and origins in the propaganda art of North Korea. Printed in North Korea paints a lively portrait of revolutionary North Korea as a utopia of color, beauty, fulfilled and educated workers and technology working in harmony with the natural world' - Korean Quarterly

A richly illustrated book exploring the beauty of North Korean visual art 

This incredible collection of prints dating from the 1950s to the twenty-first century is the only one of its kind in or outside North Korea. Depicting the everyday lives of the country's train conductors, steelworkers, weavers, farmers, scientists, and fishermen, these unique lino-cut and woodblock prints are a fascinating way to explore the culture of this still virtually unknown country. Together, they are an unparalleled testament to the talent of North Korea's artists and the unique social, cultural, and political conditions in which they work.
