From Library Journal:

Indonesian batik receives a comprehensive overview in this careful work by an avid collector, student of Asian culture, and publisher of Dutch books on the subject. Van Roojen provides a basic explanation of batik techniques and terminology, the historical development of Indonesian batik, and a survey of local styles from every region of Malaysia. The book is generously illustrated with appealing color examples of batik cloth and black-and-white photographs that show both historical and contemporary wearing and production of batik clothing. This work will not be useful to people who want instruction in making batiks, except insofar as they are interested in looking at authentic Indonesian designs. Because of its comprehensiveness and specialized subject matter, this book will be of most value to scholars, collectors, and specialists. Interested general readers may also be attracted by the illustrations, and should find the text accessible with the help of the glossary.?Kathryn Wekselman, Univ. of Cincinnati Lib., Ohio
