Learned more about different kind of batik pattern, interesting book!

The history of the development of batik is correlated with the social changes over the centuries making the book interesting reading in general. I wish that there had been a clearer explanation of the actual batik process as it seemed rather brief. Color photographs would have also enhanced the book immensely.

This book is absolutely necessary for anyone interested in Javanese culture and/or batik cloths. The information is well researched & clearly organized, and the images are breathtaking and clear. The book includes a range of textiles from different areas of Java, as well as different religious influences. I did a research project on Javanese batik cloths, and of the fifteen or so books I used, this was by far the most helpful. I highly recommend this book.

As a batik lover...this is a great book. Ever since I travelled to Jogjakarta in Java and saw my first batik mask hanging on the wall in a restaurant I was hooked. I'm traveling back to Yogya this month and plan to take a batik class. As a result of my travels to Indonesia, I decided to start my own business importing batik and other items. So 7 years later, I have manufactured and import tons of batik to the U.S. and love it all. Especially the traditional batiks. Warning...shameless promotion to follow: check out our site 1 World Sarongs for our beautiful collection from Java and Bali or you can even find us here on Amazon Market. Anyway, this is a great book with loads of beautiful pictures and articles. I'm still reading it but so far it's very good. I'm biased because I fell in love with batik.

This books serves as a wonderful introduction to the world of batik. I bought it as a counterpoint to my books by Rudolf Smend. The chapters are correctly and lucidly arranged, by regions, types and artists, ang give clarity to this complex topic. The examples chosen are simply excellent and represent the epitome of the artform.

A wonderfully rich book on batik, including valuable contributions by Indonesians. This will become a classic. Lively, sophisticated, and informative, as well as gorgeous in its imagery. This is the kind of writing we need on textile arts! A splendid addition to my library!
This book is essential for anyone interested in batik and its history in the Indonesian island of Java. It also provides Java's religious background and how batik was affected by Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam. The pictures are outstanding, showing to the reader the complexity of batik and the great talent of Indonesian batik artists. I would recommend this for anyone, especially those interested in art or Indonesian culture.
