My article on Paju Bookcity, which I visited with my research assistant Ran Kim this past July, was published today in Places on Design Observer. The Korea Foundation and the New School’s Faculty Development Fund made our transportation possible, and I’m tremendously grateful to both organizations. I described our research process in an earlier post.

Ran took lots of fabulous photos in Paju, most of which unfortunately couldn’t fit into the published article — so I’ll share some of the leftovers here:
