Kedah: A History In Drawings
This book tells the late-modern history of Kedah, the oldest state in Malaysia, through a collection of structures that illuminate an era that is rarely discussed in English. It honours a design story that is both colonial and post-colonial and has ties to Malay, Thai, and European styles of architecture. In addition to providing the reader with illustrated measured drawings in the magnificent style of the classical architect, Kedah - A History in Drawings also provides a timeline of current events in Malaysia's "cradle of civilization." It is a must-have for all those who support the conservation, and celebration, of Malaysia’s diverse architectural and cultural heritage.
