Yellow Colored Allergy by Fhuiae Kim

Bright flushes of color expand across the cream-colored pages in Fhuiae Kim’s Yellow Colored Allergy. The imagery bears a retro feel with its emphasis on geometric shapes and patterns, and illustrates a story of sensual brilliance that takes place in a hotel’s swimming pool. Whereas the text is written in Korean, the evocative nature of the drawings manages to convey a narrative independent of the writing, making for a trans-literary experience compressed into a pocket-sized edition. Text from here.
