This 1956 production of Gotthard Schuh's working Java, Sumatra and Bali is a pure masterpiece. The production quality of the book is of an exceptionally high standard with the images (B&W) of near print standard. Schuh's work is from a time of true travel, exploration and adventure. In order to bring home to a European audience the essence of Bali etc, only the highest standards of photography and journalism/prose was acceptable.
Considering the fact that this work is of an analogue (golden) age, it is stunning to see how it measures up to and exceeds current digital standards.
