A beautifully photographed, elegant study which accompanied an exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia and the National Gallery of Australia, featuring antique Islamic textiles, ceramics, metalwork, woodwork, lacquerware and other art objects from southeast Asia.

This large book features major works of art from Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore, as well as extraordinary works from the National Gallery of Australia.

The revelation of new art forms in gold, silk, lacquer, porcelain, and stone illustrate the transformations of indigenous motifs and techniques and unique developments in the arts of Islamic Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines,a s well as the Muslim communities of Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, and Vietnam."

We offer “combined shipping charges” for orders for more than one book –this often means the shipping cost for the books is less than it would have been if they had been purchased and shipped one at a time, so please ask us for a shipping quote if you are thinking about buying more than one book. Thanks!

INSURANCE??? As a seller we take responsibility for properly packing and delivering your purchase safely to you. You do not have to spend extra for insurance to guarantee that.
RETURNS: We want you to be completely satisfied- anything is returnable for any reason at all within 14 days of receipt; we do ask that you notify us that you are returning it.
OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS PLEASE NOTE:
-We always welcome orders from customers outside the United States. The “Free Shipping” marker found on many of our books only applies to shipping within the United States –we wish we could afford to offer free overseas shipping, but we cannot. Please use the “Shipping & Payments” tab (above) to check the cost of shipping. We charge actual shipping based on weight, so sometimes large, heavy, inexpensive books can actually cost more to ship than the book itself costs –I know that seems odd, but the shipping cost is based on the actual weight of the book, not its selling price. If you have any questions, please use the "Ask Us a Question" button before you buy the book.
-Import duties, taxes and related import charges added by your country are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to offerding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – please do not confuse them for additional shipping charges, which we never impose. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as ‘gifts’ to avoid import duties, as this is illegal in most countries.
