This picture book recounts through historical imagination and outstanding storytelling skills an anecdote from the childhood of Bak Je-ga (1750-1815), who was a member of the Silhak (“Practical Learning”) school of thought during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). A passage in a work by Bak, who cut paper every day during his childhood to make books, has been newly created into a tale of heartwarming love between father and son. Even amidst a social situation where those born to aristocratic fathers and lower-class mothers were discriminated against, Bak grew up under his father’s loving care. The future author was fonder of writing than anyone, and his childhood anecdote of cutting paper daily to make books has been reshaped through historical imagination and excellent storytelling skills. The expression of gentle and warm love from Bak’s father is quietly moving, transcending the period and discrimination. With traditional East Asian painting techniques, where ink and colors are applied to traditional paper, the illustrator depicts life during the Joseon Dynasty tastefully yet portrays the characters in a lighthearted and humorous manner, as if they were from a comic book, thus adding energy to this work. With dark ink brush strokes and bold composition and presentation, the volume depicts in depth the deep love communicated between father and son.
