About the Series:
‘A Korea Coloring Book Tour’ series is designed to appeal to a wide range of readers who may or may not have already visited the places being featured. Those who are yet to visit these places will enjoy their vivid ambience as if they were actually visiting, and for those who have visited the places, the series will bring back memories they would happily recall.
The first volume of the series takes the readers to Gyeongbok Palace, the heart of old Seoul and the principal palace of the Joseon Dynasty, the last Korean monarchy. The palace is a must-see for foreign visitors in Korea.
Vol. 1: Gyeongbok Palace:
Starting from the main gate, the tour takes one to the major halls and facilities of Gyeongbok Palace, the principal palace of the Joseon Dynasty (1392–1910). They include the main throne hall, the king’s office, a floating pavilion for official functions, the living chambers of the king and the queen, the queen dowager’s residence, a private outdoor pavilion of the royal family, and a guard tower. The drawings depict the structures along with activities held at these venues like a royal wedding, a banquet, an archery demonstration, and the making of sauces for the palace kitchens.
The book will give the readers pleasure in reflecting and partaking of the ambience and value of Gyeongbok Palace as they apply colors to the exquisite drawings in a style of their own.
