Kristian Kabuay was in town the other week. In fact, he had been around for a while before we had a chance to meet up, and meet up we did, thanks to his aunt, Mitzi Duque Ruiz.
A scholar and artist, Kabuay created the cover art for Agam, in fine calligraphy that spelled out in stylized Baybayin the title of the book.
Kristian had a full Philippine itinerary when he arrived in March. He did a live painting and exhibit at the Manila Collectible event in Intramuros on the 29th, and from April 9 to 11 he was in Lingayen, Pangasinan to attend the First Baybayin Summit at the Sison Auditorium.Read More
Well. Okay. Yes. We’re finally available. Sigh. But also – hooray! You can now get your copies of Agam in select National Bookstore, Powerbooks, and Abacus branches, which we’ve listed below. (Tip: when you ask for the book, try to spell out the entire title if you can – Agam: Filipino Narratives on Uncertainty and Climate Change. In National’s main branch in Cubao, it was displayed in the “General Science” section, with books by Richard Dawkins and Mary Roach. Excellent company, of course, but we asked for the book to be located with Filipiniana publications!)Read More
