Full Description

Honjok is the revolutionary philosophy that teaches us to appreciate our moments of solitude and help us transforming our self-isolation into a new lifestyle. This book describes Honjok in all of its facets, among which honbap – eating alone, honsul – drinking alone and honnol – playing and spending time alone. The book is structured in short chapters where text, graphics and illustrations work as complementary narrative elements. Each chapter, identifiable by a specific colour, is self-contained and requires no cross-referencing. Readers are free to approach the book in whichever order they prefer with illustrations and infographics that allow them to interact with the book.
