Dover Publications, 2006 - Art - 59 pages
One of Indonesia's most highly developed art forms, batik designs can be traced back to ancient Egypt and other parts of the Middle East. Patterns created with dyes and a pen dipped into hot wax produce rich and unique color combinations. This stunning collection includes more than 200 of these highly stylized and often dramatic batik designs depicting florals, geometrics, winged creatures, and other fanciful images.
Ideal for immediate practical use, this handy archive--reproduced directly from a rare, authoritative source--will supply artists and crafters with an unusual range of designs and serve as a delightful browsing book for enthusiasts of Asian art and culture.
