retold & illustrated by JooHee Yeoon | Enchanted Lion USA | 64pp | 20.30 x 25.4cm
A gorgeous, graphically compelling retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story of love and fate by award-winning printmaker JooHee Yoon. In this contemporary retelling of Andersen’s tale, Yoon renders the lifecycle of the one-legged tin soldier, from the moment of its manufacture to his untimely end. Foregrounding the accidental, Yoon’s version captures life as the interplay of personality and fate, fulfilment and loss, reminding us too we how strongly we can love another when able to identify with them.
