The Story of Hanbok before the Joseon Dynasty 조선 이전 우리옷 한복 이야기
.
This book describes the hanbok culture that was prevalent from ancient times to the late Goryeo Dynasty (1400s) as a part of the Korean aesthetic and everyday norms. Each chapter comes complete with rich illustrations and detailed explanations.

Hanbok describes the aesthetic ideas and cultural lives of our ancestors. The recent Korean Wave phenomenon has led to growing interest around the world for traditional hanbok. Among the different iterations of hanbok, this book focuses on hanbok before the Joseon era (from ancient times to the late Goryeo Dynasty) and goes into detail about its characteristics, providing colorful illustration along the way. The text and drawings in this art book will speak more to beginners or average readers interested in the basic facts about hanbok and its history, more so than students of fashion design or readers with an extensive knowledge on hanbok. Grouped into familiar themes, the book is easy to read and provides clear information in an accessible way so that more readers can become familiar with hanbok. In this book, readers can trace the changes in hanbok on the Korean Peninsula from Gojoseon days to the kingdoms of Goguryeo, Baekje, Shilla and Gaya, to Unified Shilla, Balhae, and leading on to early and late Goryeo. In doing so, they will see the various iterations of hanbok along with their accessories, and the kinds of hanbok worn by people according to social class (elites and common folk). The book also provides a glimpse into the clothes worn by people in the neighboring countries of China, Japan, and Vietnam, in an effort to provide a more comprehensive look at the clothing culture of the region.
