Published by Cloud Projects Enterprise
One postcard for every decade from the 1880s to the 2020s. Experience a history of Malaysia through visual artefacts as told by Universiti Malaya Professor Dr. Simon Soon, architectural researcher Lim Sheau Yun, and digital researcher Ong Kar Jin. From ice cream wrappers in the 1980s to the Syair Ghayat Al-Muna in the 1900s, this full-colour book is a journey through the layered stories that these objects hold. Each historical image is printed on perforated pages that can be liberated and used as postcards or as gorgeous decorations; once torn, fold the book in and voila, you have a tinier version of the book.
