Review:

"This is THE book on batik, an invaluable appreciation of a vanishing art, a must have for anyone interested in textiles."—Diane von Furstenberg

"I first discovered batik back in the late sixties through the eyes of Inger McCabe Elliott. Over the years I've revisited this extraordinary work in all its richness and creativity. It will always be a great source of inspiration to me."—Oscar de la Renta

"A book for scholars and designers alike. With its beautiful photographs and rich historical text, Batik: Fabled Cloth of Java conveys the magic of a unique and exotic art."—Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.

"I leave the book open on a table to turn every day to another page, to be absorbed in the visual delights of color and design, and to discover an energy that only beauty can give. This book is part of my life."—Gloria Vanderbilt

"In definitive text and beautiful pictures, Inger McCabe Elliott interweaves the rich culture of Java with the glories of its magical cloth. A truly gorgeous book!"—Richard C. Holbrooke
