If you’re like me and have a keen interest in the history of Korea’s early missionary community, check out Seoul Selection’s recently released “Missionary Photography in Korea: Encountering the West through Christianity.”

Edited by renowned Korean history scholar Donald Clark and — who would know a thing about missionary history in Korea — and organized by the Korea Society, the hardcover volume is full of rare old photos, interviews and essays.

PS: If you live in New York, Prof. Clark will be speaking at the Korea Society on Oct 22 — copies of the book will be available for purchase. In Korea, Gyeonggi Suwon International School will be hosting a one-week exhibition of the book’s photographs from Oct 27.
