Uk-bae Lee, Plough (MARCH) Hard­cover $17.95 (40pp), 978-0-87486-972-9

Sep­a­rat­ing North and South Ko­rea, the demil­i­ta­rized zone reaches 154 miles from sea to sea and has grad­u­ally be­come home to ot­ters, seals, moun­tain goats, water deer, and more. Softly drawn yet pow­er­ful im­ages un­cover a peace­ful wildlife refuge thriv­ing nat­u­rally de­spite harsh ra­zor wire, march­ing sol­diers, and heavy tanks. As the sea­sons pass, a grand­fa­ther ob­serves the nat­u­ral beauty while mourn­ing the di­vide that keeps him from re­turn­ing to his home across the DMZ.
