- Book Intro
A Round of Tightrope Walking
Korean tightrope walking, which is listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage, is regarded as a comprehensive art, beyond just showing tightrope walking in other countries, through the story and interactions between the tightrope walkers and the clowns, and the performance of Six Korean traditional Instruments. This book captures these characteristics of our tightrope walking in a picture book whilst taking into the modern scene with threaded pages and a QR code having masters’ performance.
- About the Author
(English) I love living a slow, quiet life within laziness, recording the experiences in my daily life by drawing. I want to explore the shapes that form as dots, lines, and faces meet, and draw pictures that make people want to see them again. Expressing my own various visual languages within a physical vessel of the picture book, I hope my picture books can become a small shelter for someone. I have previously authored the book 『Diving』.
