Korean history...

and my favorite icecream in 2011 :))

I like the layout on this page although i don't understand what it says.

A colourful illustration of a ceremony, possibly an inauguration of a King, or a royal wedding.

After 145 years, finally Korean historical royal books have made it home from France. If it weren't for Park Byung Sun, who found the pile of books among Chinese books in the National Library of France while working as a librarian there in 1975, it could have not made it home and there could have been no way that we knew of its existence. These are books that record protocols and procedures of royal ceremonies and these were meant to be handed down generation after generation. It was priceless to see the delicate illustrations, drawings and writings.
