This first printed Korean type (Hangul) can be seen in the printing museum in South Korea. (via welovetypography)

This is from 1447! Looks like it held up well through the years.

I received this adorable photo of Courtney’s daughter the other day– modeling the “It’s the Carrot” tote! Isn’t she a cutie?

Hi Aein
Love the bag!!! So cute. My daughter and I go to Korean school and it is perfect! They love the song and now they have bag to match!
Courtney

The song she was referring to is the “San Tokki” (Mountain Rabbit) song. It’s a children’s song and I used to sing it when I was young, too. Here’s a cute video of some ladies singing and dancing to San Tokki! Click here to see the video!

Thrifting find!

I wanted to kill some time yesterday and wandered into a thrift store. I decided to check out the books and to my surprise I found some goodies!

Clockwise from the top left: Bird Red Lie, an untranslated Korean manhwa containing three stories set in alternative realities $1; John’s Spiritual Journey, bilingual Japanese/English children’s story about a dog named John $1; くもん読書コース4A, kanji-less stories for children $.50; and Korean for the Business Traveler $1!!

I couldn’t resist getting them all for only $3.50. They all look relatively new, too. I guess I’ll have to check out the book sections more often!
