The Art of Propaganda: Picture Gallery

The pictures in this gallery are taken from two North Korean propaganda books purchased in China near the China-North Korean border.

These images have been selected to demonstrate the major themes in the art of North Korea encountered by everyday people, including architecture, billboards and monuments, posters, and other art dedicated to the personality cults of the late Kim Il Sung and his son, Kim Jong Il, the current leader of North Korea.
