Winner of the World Illustration Award in the Professional Children’s Publishing category 'I Am The Subway' is told from the point of view of the subway moving through Seoul and the surrounding countryside. Inside the subway are people with complex lives, whose lives are intertwined with each other.
The people using the subway are described by what is happening in their lives now, but also by who they used to be, and their connections with each other.
It's beautiful, its simple and gentle and intense. It leaves you think about the stories of the people around you. This is a picture book for adults as much as for children.

I adore everything about picture books. So often I read one that makes me think 'I wish I'd written that!' This is a place for me to share those treasured finds.
