About This Book

The Danar Hadi collection of Javanese batik housed in the Surakarta Palace in Solo, Central Java consists of some 10,000 pieces made between the mid-19th century and 1975. It is one of the most comprehensive batik collections in existence. This volume discusses the history and aims of the collectors, and using archival black-and-white photographs explains the processes of batik manufacture. Some 300 pieces are illustrated in colour with provenance and explanatory notes.
