"This rare glimpse into North Korean society is the first book of its kind: a collection of state-sponsored propaganda posters that presents the unique graphic sensibilities of this little-known country." "Seldom seen by the outside world, North Korea's propaganda art colors the cities and countryside with vibrant images of brave soldiers, happy peasants, and a heroic and compassionate leader. More than 250 of these posters are collected here for the first time, showing the wide range of North Korean propaganda art. Hand-painted works from the last fifty years, these posters display the latest political slogans that are repeated in newspaper editorials and government declarations throughout the country." "A collection that will appeal to artists and graphic designers as well as those interested in this closed society, this book may not represent the reality of North Korea, but it offers a vision of the country as promoted by its regime and depicted by its state-sponsored artists."
