Résumé

Made in North Korea uncovers the fascinating and surprisingly beautiful graphic culture of North Korea - from packaging to hotel brochures, luggage tags to tickets for the world-famous mass games. From his base in Beijing, Bonner has been running tours into North Korea for over twenty years, and along the way collecting graphic ephemera.He has amassed thousands of items that, as a collection, provide an extraordinary and rare insight into North Korea's state- controlled graphic output, and the lives of ordinary North Koreans.- Nick Bonner studied landscape architecture in the UK. During a study trip to China in 1993 he visited North Korea and subsequently set up Koryo Tours, based in Beijing, specializing in tourism to the DPRK. Since 2001, Bonner has produced three documentaries on North Korea and a feature film.Key Selling Points.- The first and most comprehensive collection of North Korean graphic ephemera in the world.- Features hand-held, transportable ephemera of all kinds including metro tickets, stamps, badges, packaging, sports event and cinema tickets, postcards, airline tickets and luggage labels, shop and gift-wrapping paper, children's toys, tinned food labels, lapel pins, bottle tops, phrase books - and more.- Provides a compelling glimpse into the creative culture of North Korea, as well as the daily lives of North Koreans.- Organized visually to bring out the surprising diversity and beauty of these everyday objects, the book is interspersed with eight short texts that bring the collection to life and provide insights into how North Koreans think, work, and live.
