HOME > THE ROYAL PALACES OF KOREA: SIX CENTURIES OF DYNASTIC GRANDEUR
The Royal Palaces of Korea: Six Centuries of Dynastic Grandeur
by Shin Young Hoon (Author), John Huston (Translator)

The Royal Palaces of Korea is the result of years of collaboration between two experts. Shin Young Hoon is a renowned authority on traditional Korean architecture, specializing in the theory and construction of hanok, the traditional Korean house. Be it palace, shrine or garden, everything is explained in terms of structure, fengshui, utility, and historic significance. Nothing is left to the imagination either, as photographer Kim Dae Byuk offers views of each building, both interior and exterior, in a collection of 384 full-color images.

There have been several books on this subject, but none combine so much fascinating details with so many visual treats. First written in Korean, the text has been translated and adapted by John Huston, a graduate of Seoul National University, so it comes to you in readable form without compromising the rich contents of the original. This book strikes a happy medium by presenting a wealth of information of interest to casual readers and of value to serious scholars.
