Format: Hardcover
Of the dozens of photo books of countries that I have this is the finest ever. I have travelled extensively in Korea and have lived there. This book is true to the country and the people. It truely is agreat work of art and terrific value.

I bought this as a gift to my father-in-law who really loves looking at photographs and he loved it!
I peeked at it too and I feel it is a slightly odd representation of Korea, but my gift receiver loved it so I have no complaints.

Beautiful book-perhaps a bit heavy on "people" and less on the physical beauty of the country.

My fiancee is half Korean but he hasn't been there since he was very young, so I got him this for Christmas and we've both enjoyed looking at the beautiful pictures. We recently moved in together and use it as a coffee table book now.
