Handicrafts of the Korean People
Most studies on Korean craftworks have so far focused on academic interests, searching for archeological meaning and a well-ordered art history. Written by Son Yeonghak, this book is quite different from its predecessors as it centers more on the inner landscape of Korean life and basic ideas of living. This book will be a great source of understanding for the spirit and wisdom of Korean people, while helping readers realize the value and meaning of traditional Korean household objects that even many of today's Korean people often ignore or forget.
