Priceless Collection of Jakarta's National Museum Celebrated in Newly Published Table Top Edition.


(5/29/2007)

Buku Antar Bangsa, an Indonesian publishing house founded by former Minister of Tourism and Telecommunications Joop Ave specializing in books celebrating the art and culture of the Nation, recently released a magnificent 308-page table-top book "Icons of Art: National Museum Jakarta" - exploring the priceless collection housed at the National Museum.

One of the oldest and largest museums in Asia, Museum Nasional is home to a collection covering millions of years of natural and human history, representing the cultures of thousands of islands scattered between the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

The Museum began collecting natural and manmade objects almost 300 years ago – an enterprise that continues to the present day. Containing unique works of art made from almost every kind of material found in the archipelago's seas, forests, and mountains - the Museum epitomizes the national slogan of Bhinneka Tunggal Ika or "Unity in Diversity."

Those who wander the Museum will see its extensive collection of indigenous arts, items connected to the spice trade, gold, incense, antique ivory, ancient statuary and an unequalled oriental ceramics collection. Now, through the publication of "Icons of Art: National Museum Jakarta", those unable to actually visit the collection in Jakarta can enjoy its collection via the superb photographs and informed narrative contained in this book.

Featuring images of items from the Museum's collection never before published, this new book appears on the occasion of a major expansion of the National Museum Jakarta. The Museum is a huge source of pride for all Indonesians, and a source of wonder for all who enjoy art. This book will make the collection more accessible to all.

Icons of Art: National Museum Jakarta

by Retno Sulistianingsih Sitowati and Prof. Dr. John N. Miksic

Editor-in-Chief by Joop Ave

308pp. 240 x 270 mm hardcover - ISBN 979-8926-25-0
