Brehi: Kelantan, under the skin

This photography book is a study of the five performing arts that define the state of Kelantan—wayang kulit, makyong, dikir barat, menora and main puteri. The book features 85 colour and black & white images of dalangs and dancers, poets and singers, actors and musicians—behind, on– and off–stage.

Some custom type were designed for the chapter title page, as there were ligatures that did not exist within the chosen typeface. The designs that came to be were ligatures referenced from a number of different typefaces during my research.
