Exhibition Book

This is the book cover that I designed and authored to accompany my 1 st Solo Art and Poetry Exhibition in 1981 . A copy of the book is kept at the Library of Congress and can be searched by browsing the Library of Congress Online Catalogue, and then typing "Pameran Lukisan dan Puisi Mood" under basic search. This book contains a collection of my poems in English and Bahasa Malaysia which I wrote from 1967 - 1980 and sketch drawings of the paintings on show. It contains 53 pages. The book size is 21 cm x 12.5 cm. Why sketch drawings? I couldn't afford to publish it in colour or have the paintings photographed! Therefore the catalogue of paintings were sketched.

Well, the coming 2nd Solo Exhibition will be a lot more different. Colour images will be there. Better printing and professional touches to all design and copy writing. The book will be bigger and thicker to cover all the newer interests and hobbies I picked along the last 28 years. Chiefly among them are : landscaping, eco-farming, tropical cut flowers, writing, photography and cats.
