Format: Paperback
Batik: Design, Style & History is both a history and a photographic showcase of Batik textile art of Indonesia. Perhaps most often used in brilliant shawls for women's daily wear, batik has even had styles meant to be associated with the aristocracy and are worn to this day for ceremonial occasions. In addition to full-color images of batik fabric, Batik: Design, Style & History includes some vintage black-and-white photographs of batik being worn or even created. The text spares no effort in delving into the traditions and even legends behind this unique and wonderful blend of artistic expression and practical functionality.

Save your money. Get the McCabe book. Kerlogue is long on archival sources and museum references, short on any humanistic insights (and perhaps ethnographic experiences?) into the meanings and uses of textiles. She is an "armchair scholar" and this comes through in what she produces. There is an (sort of) encyclopedic quality to her works, but they are sorely missing in humanity. Archaic, cold, and just not very good. Anyone who has spent tome in Southeast Asia will find her work vapid.
