Koryo Tours, North Korean architects exhibition
Nick Bonner, the co-founder of Koryo Tours who dreamt up the project, told CNN: “There is very little exposure to contemporary architecture in North Korea.”
The exhibition, called Utopian Tours, is on display at the Korean Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale in Italy until November.
Very interesting to see their vision of the future when they have little exposure to the outside world to shape their thinking.
“The following “Utopian Tours” drawings are conceptual images of what tourism in North Korea might one day look like, created by North Korean architects.
The images, curated by Nick Bonner, are on view as part of the exhibition at the Venice Architecture Biennale in the Korean Pavilion. Bonner runs the Beijing-based Koryo Tours—a company that organizes tours of outsiders into North Korea.”

The Outsider and Others | H.P. Lovecraft | 1939
First Edition. The first publication from Arkham House and first collection of Lovecraft’s stories, published posthumously, which would go on to not only to have an enormous influence on horror fiction, but on film and music as well.
Very Good plus in an about Very Good dust jacket. Light bumps to the top corners, and a slight lean. Jacket is rubbed, with light toing to the spine and rear panel, with chips and tears overall. Still, a mostly presentable example of the scarce dust jacket.
