Artist's book. "This book was created as a response to the many souvenirs that are available at popular tourist destinations. ... The book is made in two sections: The red section [in English] is from the perspective of a traveler from England to Malaysia [Kuala Lumput] and the blue section [in Malay] is from the perspective of a traveler from Malaysia to England [Brighton]. Both travelers have bought the same souvenirs and the book can be opened to contrast similar items. Melancholy travel and memory quotes accompany the images along with drawings that were created during my journey."--Publisher's website.
