Hans Christian Anderson | JooHee Yoon | c.2016 Enchanted Lion Books
In this graphically bold re-telling of Andersen’s tale, Yoon renders the journey of the one-legged tin soldier from the moment of creation to his untimely end. Foregrounding the random and the accidental, Yoon’s version captures life as the struggle between the inner spirit and fate.–back cover
