When Indonesia was still 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. This book is testament to how valuable old postcards can be to recreating the history of colonial Indonesia.and the people who lived there.
This is a splendid compilation of postcards of Indonesian architecture and peoples taken primarily by Dutch photographers around the turn of the 20th Century. The postcards are grouped according to geographic region, with Sumatra, Java, Batavia (now Jakarta), Bali, Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Irian Jaya (now Papua) being the principal groupings. The postcards capture every aspect of traditional Indonesian life, from a royal wedding in Yogyakarta to a gathering of Asmat tribesmen in Papua.
