Book, 120 x 180 mm, 115 pages, hardcover. Graphic design and cover illustration by My Hellsten

Graphic design for the novel »Vår förbjudne hjälte« by the South Korean author Yi Munyôl, Bokförlaget Tranan. Han Pyŏngt’ae has moved from a reputable school in Seoul to a smaller rural school. When he challenges the leader of the class, he gets caught up in a power struggle that puts the whole school in motion. »Vår förbjudne hjälte« is a portrayal of the dramatic dynamics of a classroom, but at the same time it can be read as a universal story of how people are influenced by authoritarianism – both those who follow the power and those who try to challenge.
