Subj: North Korean  Comics 

I am a writer and curator specialising in comics art. I co-curated last  
year's British Library's exhibition Comics Unmasked and co-wrote the  
accompanying book.

Here's my website listing my books: http://www.paulgravett.com//books/index

I have some awareness of the propaganda comics produced in North Korea,  
but I would like to learn more and source some examples.

Do you have any knowledge of these items or perhaps know someone who  does? 
Would any be held in collections or libraries here in the UK?

Many thanks for any guidance and connections please.

Best wishes,


Paul Gravett
