Louis Frederic, Jean-Louis Nou (photographer)
This lavish, encyclopedic study of Borobudur makes it possible to understand as never before the sources of the monument's historical background, its architecture, and its symbolism, which draw from Hindu and native Javanese, as well as Buddhist traditions. Jean-Louis Nou's sensitive and breathtaking photographs establish the monument's setting and impressive scale. In an important appendix to Louis Frederic's extensive discussion, the volume reprints the complete set of black and white photographs published between 1927 and 1930 by Th. van Erp and N.J. Krom in their seminal Beschrijving van Barabudur.
