Pictorial book on two States being compiled
Two foreign photojournalists are working on a 200-page pictorial book on Sabah and Sarawak which is expected to go a long way in promoting the States as a tourist destination.

Belgian Walter François and frenchman Yvan Deweerdt of the Voyager Press have been working closely with tourism promotion corporations in the two States in producing the book.

The two have already come up with 10,000 slides depicting the natural beauty and the way of life of the various ethnic groups in the States.

"Most Europeans do not know anything about Sarawak and we hope to make then aware of the natural beauty of the States with the book.

"When completed, the book will be sold worldwide,: François told the New Staits Times
