The Book of Batik
Text: Fiona Kerlogue
This is the definitive study of Indonesian batik, a glorious textile art and famed cloth rich in symbolism, now in demand all over the world. The Book of Batik explores the origins of batik, the materials and methods of production, regional traditions and differences, motifs and meanings, modern influences, batik as costume and as an art form. A list of international batik collections, map of Indonesia’s batik-producing centres and an extensive index complete this authoritative yet accessible work.
