The ever creative Zunar, our dearest political cartoonist has published his cartoons in a book this time: “Perak Daul kartun”! Why a book? Because he has heard nothing from the Home Ministry regarding his publication permit ever since his first collection of cartoons hit the streets. This new book cost only RM10, and you can buy it off http://www.cartonkafe.com.
In a press statement, Zunar says he does not wish to have a confrontation, which is why he is publishing his cartoons in a book this time, and not in a magazine form, as he did earlier. His reason for publishing this book is to share his alternative cartoons about current affairs in Malaysia, which mainstream cartoonist failed to do.
“We believe the cartoonist’s role is not just to share humour in his/her composition but also have the social responsibility to criticise, document reality, share information, raise the voices of the people and also to educate”.
So people, make sure you buy a copy. In fact, if anyone’s going to buy me a Christmas gift, please buy me Zunar cartoon book! Heheh!
