Description

Black Book joins two threads of disparate cultures and histories—Confucian virtues & black humour—inquiring into contemporary ideologies such as patriarchy and technological determinism. The woodblock illustrations in Black Book are borrowed from the 15th century Confucian text “Illustrated Conduct of the Three Bonds,” published and reproduced in Joseon-era Korea as an effort to disseminate Confucian principles throughout the kingdom. These images are juxtaposed with new jests and cartoon effects, collected from various online sources, literary texts, or by word of mouth. True to the form of black humour, Black Book is engaging and upsetting, playful and dark, seductive and uncomfortable.

Hardcover, perfect-bound.
