Malaysia’s favourite cartoonist celebrated

October 16th, 2008 at 17:18 by Andrew
Lunchtime today saw a celebration for the German edition of Kampung Boy by LAT, one of Malaysia’s most celebrated cartoonists. The book is the first of a popular series of autobiographical comic books that humorously capture Malaysian village life. LAT is now an institution in Malaysia and Kampung Boy has been described by no less than The Simpsons creator Matt Groening as ‘one of the all-time great cartoon books.’

The celebration was held at the Malaysian National Institute of Translation (Hall 6.1 E916). The Institute was founded back in 1993 to encourage quality translation and interpreting in Malaysia and, notably, is interested in encouraging translations into and out of Malay and English (Malay is the country’s official language, but many Malaysian books are written in English). Publishers will be made most welcome at their stand, as I was.
