Book of the month: Elizabeth Keith, Old Korea

The original edition of 'Old Korea' first came out in 1946, and the first Korean-language edition translated by Song Young-dal, professor emeritus at the University of East Carolina, was published in 2006. He also worked to reissue the latest supplemented Korean version.

'Old Korea' gave Western readers a look at Korea's culture and customs during the peninsula's colonial period under Japan, with vivid water painting illustrations by Keith.

The senior curator of Asian art at the NGV Wayne Crothers and the President of the Asian Arts Society of Australia (TAASA) Jackie Menzies.
