Paintings by Jung Kwang (1935 – 2002)

This one is pretty difficult to get hold of, and it is not listed in WorldCat. Abe Books seems to have a copy, but otherwise this title doesn’t show up much in internet search results. If it weren’t listed on Brother Anthony’s website or in the LTI Korea database you wouldn’t know it existed.

Brother Anthony explains that “the book was only printed in 1000 copies, and will never be republished. The combination of paintings and poems deserves to be better known.” Accordingly, he has provided the full text online:
