Commemorative album of public, private photos

Straits Times Press has published a commemorative album of former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew.

LKY: A Pictorial Memoir features private and public pictures of Mr Lee, and is an abridged version of Lee Kuan Yew: A Life In Pictures, which was published two years ago.

The 192-page book also includes some new photos.

They were chosen by The Straits Times' picture editor Stephanie Yeow for their strength and quality. "In putting together this keepsake photo album, I hope to recapture the greatest moments of LKY, the public and private man," she said.

"Most of all, I hope it will bring you much joy, as it has me."

The book's cover features a portrait of Mr Lee, overlaid with close to 1,200 smaller photographs of him, put together by Straits Times Press creative director Lock Hong Liang.

The 188 photos in the book are captioned in English and Chinese. It is on sale at bookstores for $26.75 (after GST).
