"This book attempts to intersect two languages and comes in the form of an alphabet book using Hangul and English. The Korean alphabet Hangul consists of at least one consonant and one vowel to make a syllable which forms one character. Words have been selected that reflect my identity. I used the English alphabet but employed the structure of Hangul. By reflecting the Korean letter form and combing the two languages, this book opens a window for an English-speaking person into my struggle with a foreign language. The Korean font used in this book is Hunmin Jeongeum, which is the original name for Hangul. The English font is Book Antiqua." — Colophon
