The only thing Korean about this page is me. The rest is filled with randomness I find on the web. These wares represent the things I find most worthy. Welcome to the Korean General Store.

The Mozart Project is a book about the life and music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Or is it an app? Stephen Fry calls it “a completely new kind of book”…you read it in iBooks but it acts more like an app than anything. Over 200 pages of text by leading Mozart scholars is accompanied by hours of music, videos, photo slideshows, all sorts of other goodies.

Monica Lee was a digital artist for 12 years before making the switch to an analog way of working. Now, she uses pencil to create complex, photorealistic drawings of people, animals, and still lifes.

Blackbeard: The Lost Journal – An absorbing graphic novel about the life of one of the world’s most notorious pirates 

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag: Blackbeard: The Last Journal

by Christie Golden
Insight Editions
2014, 148 pages, 8.1 x 10.4 x 1 inches
$25 Buy a copy on Amazon

If you’re not a gamer, don’t let the title of this book scare you off. Yes, it’s a companion book to the popular Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag game, but as someone who hasn’t played any of the Assassin games, I thoroughly enjoyed this “journal,” which comes off as a very authentic and moving account of the life of Blackbeard (aka Edward Thatch, aka Edward Teach) during the years of 1713 – 1716. Reminding me of Tony Soprano, Blackbeard (at least as portrayed in this book) was a captain who seemed to have two identities: he was both threatening, gruff and ruthless (“Blackbeard”) as well as fair, emotional and loyal to his friends and crew, sometimes to a fault (“Edward Thatch”). The book easily stands on its own as a fascinating graphic novel, with beautiful illustrations and lots of fun removable extras, such as a wanted poster, playing cards, a map, letters and more. I am now going to purchase the Black Flag game as a companion to the book. – Carla Sinclair
