Preserving the art of 1960’s and 70’s Yangon

Most of the prints/book covers are from the 1960’s and 70’s, “a period of Myanmar/Yangon artwork that had been completely neglected,” Percival explained. “No one had looked at it [the art] before so it was just kind of sitting there on the shelves and no one had used it.” While older imagery from the early 1900’s have been popular at Myanmar souvenir shops — think: Yangoods — Percival noticed that no one had really gotten into the 1960’s/70’s style. In addition to book covers, Percival also collects and sells high quality scans of postcards from that time period.
