Another beauty from Poets & Punks (who bought us the beautiful Anju & Banju Korean tapas book). This vibrant and handsomely published guide book takes us hidden Seoul through its bridges, modern architecture, apartment complexes, lost structures and even its manhole covers.
The author, Youngjoon Kim, presents, through the documentation of his city, the aesthetic and cultural history of the South Korean capital. This feeling of place is augmented by the use of beautiful full-colour photographs throughout and the inclusion of the Korean Hangul alphabet, which sits with the English wording on each page.
it makes you want to visit - which, let's be honest, is the duty of a good guide.
