Nick Bonner on Graphics From Everyday Life in the DPRK | 2018 LitFest Podcast

By August 10, 2018Podcast

During his 25 years of travelling to the DPRK, Nicholas Bonner has amassed one of the world’s largest collections of beautiful and quirky items of North Korean graphic design. These items — from stamps and postcards, to food labels, luggage tags, and cigarette packs — have now been curated for presentation in a unique single-volume book, Made in North Korea, alongside a number of informative and insightful essays penned by Bonner.

Published by Phaidon, the book uncovers the fascinating and surprisingly beautiful graphic culture of North Korea, while providing new understanding into the country and its aesthetics.
