Batik Inspirations - Malaysia's Living Heritage
If you are in the fashion industry, or one who loves batik, or culture and heritage, or one who simply loves coffee-table books, Batik Inspirations, is for you.
In it, you will find everything about batik from its meaning to its design, batik Malaysia, its history, the art behind it, and how batik is today. Batik creations from nine local designers are featured in this amazing collector's item. I believe this is the only comprehensive book on batik in the whole of Malaysia. The first.
The book which has been receiving rave reviews, is the brainchild of QuaChee, Malaysian-born photographer, writer, and model with the collaboratiion of photographer eM.K (pronounced emkay) who has 30 years of photography experience.
Batik Inspirations comes in two versions. The one on the left is the original version, meant for overseas markets, while the one on the right, with the butterflies, is more for Malaysian market with added testimonials from our own dignitaries. This book is great as corporate gifts too.
If you have read the comments in my previous post, Falling Into You, you would have noticed the author of the second comment. I was pleasantly surprised by the name. It actually struck me as familiar, like I have seen the name before, so I googled QuaChee and lo and behold! I realised my instincts were correct.
QuaChee, if you are reading this, thank you for gracing my humble blog. Your passion is indeed an inspiration. May your Batik Inspirations soar to greater heights. Best wishes to more milestones! Cheers!
