DOM Publishers put Pyongyang, North Korea on the map with their 368-page, two-part architectural guide book. Volume 1 presents more than 100 buildings, without any further commentary beyond the information provided by the Pyongyang Foreign Languages Publishing House. Volume 2 dissects this material and puts it in the context of North Korean history and urban planning practices.
