Made In North Korea: Graphics From Everyday Life in the DPRK

By Nicholas Bonner
Phaidon, £24.95

‘Made In North Korea’ (House of Illustration, London, 26 March–13 May 2018) is a window into a strange and distant world. The overriding slogan ‘Keep North Korea Great’ resonates throughout, invoking a place in which marketing is meant not for profit but for the good of the people.
