Indonesia : 500 Early Postcards

Singapore: Editions Didier Millet, 2011. Quarto, original pictorial flexible boards, colour plates, b&w plates, pp 288. Corners very lightly bumped, otherwise near fine condition.

When Indonesia was known as the Dutch East Indies, images on postcards were often the first views foreigners had of this fascinating land, the world's largest archipelago. The 500 postcards reproduced in this book are divided into seven regions. They are arranged broadly into town views, landscapes, architecture, portraits and aspects unique to that particular area. Attractive in themselves, the postcards are also a largely untapped resource for those interested in archaeology, architecture, textile design, and town planning. Item #103152
