'Ikat Textiles of the Indonesian Archipelago' by Peter ten Hoopen is being published in association with the exhibition "Fibres of Life: Ikat Textiles of the Indonesian Archipelago" at the University Museum and Art Gallery at the University of Hong Kong 15 September to 25 November, 2017. Peter says about the book:
Quote:
The occasion will be commemorated by the publication of Ikat Textiles of the Indonesian Archipelago, with around 450 pages, over 200 full page plates, 100 in-text illustrations including both contemporary and historic field photography. The book covers the whole archipelago, some of it in passing, other parts in depth, including several ikat weaving areas that so far have not been covered in the literature. To facilitate further research it has over 500 footnotes and a fine-grained index. A panel of ten region-specific experts helped to enrich Ikat Textiles of the Indonesian Archipelago with information only they could have provided, and several fellow-collectors and generous photographers provided rare materials. Now at the end it feels almost like a communal project. It was certainly a project that was widely supported. Steven G. Alpert was so kind as to write the insightful foreword which contextualizes the collection and helps to appreciate the collecting philosophy that informed it.
