The latest issue of Craig Thompson's amazing new, ongoing series is here. It's another great looking issue. This time around we're given an up close and personal look at the Sisyphean task of the rock removal required by ginseng cultivation, as undertaken by Craig and his brother. Of course, that's only the anchor for an issue that, as the previousl issues, hopscotches through time and space to weave together Thompson's own personal timeline with the history and geography of ginseng in this ever engaging look at the intricate webs of commerce, history, nation and family that all converge on this humble plant.
We also received a restock of the first three issues, so anyone who hasn't got around to giving this a try is now good to go!
