Put LAT’s comic books in your shopping list and bring the ‘Kampung Boy’ series back home.

You don’t need to be Malaysian or to live in Malaysia to enter LAT’s world: it is Malaysia. If you have visited Malaysia, that means that you can appreciate LAT. If you enjoyed visiting Malaysia, then you will enjoy reading LAT’s books. If you wish to share a piece of Malaysia with family or friends, and if you are looking for something to keep the Malaysian atmosphere, then the ‘Kampung Boy’ series is the best purchase.  LAT’s comics books are available in all good bookshops but most of the time instead of being promoted at the front desk – as they richly deserve – they are hidden and you would need to ask the staff where they are. 

I hope my modest contribution would help in promoting LAT’s talent among visitors and travellers, and that more people will share my interest and admiration of this very special person.

Breaking news : if you are in KL there is an exhibition of LAT’s cartoons (original drawings),  14-31 th of August, at Bangsar Shopping Center (Bangsar).

Their main objective is to preserve the indigenous minorities’ craft heritage by helping them to find and develop a sustainable market for their crafts. They only facilitate the sale of the craft and encourage the indigenous communities to develop their own businesses.
