A gorgeous, graphically compelling retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's classic story of love and fate by award-winning printmaker JooHee Yoon
In this contemporary retelling of Andersen's tale, Yoon renders the lifecycle of the one-legged tin soldier, from the moment of its manufacture to his untimely end. Foregrounding the accidental, Yoon's version captures life as the interplay of personality and fate, fulfillment and loss, reminding us how strongly we can love another when able to identify with them.
