At long last

from Press News, posted 03/03/2010 - 07:25

It’s been something of a grueling process but finally Robert Cribb’s Digital Atlas of Indonesian History has gone off to the printers. Printers? A good question. The essence and value of the atlas are in its vast array of maps and text arranged and presented on a DVD and companion website. With the DVD is a printed user guide, however. Our Singaporean printer will be printing this guide as well as arranging the mass production of the DVDs. 

Proudly displaying a copy of the DVD master that went off for manufacture are Gerald Jackson and Bernd Wunsch, who did much of the work to transform a work of scholarly excellence into something that is also utilitarian and interactive for its users. Behind them, the atlas can be seen on screen with Robert Cribb keeping a close eye on things.

If you are attending the AAS General Meeting in Philadelphia later this month, take the time to visit the publishing exhibition there (from memory, downstairs in the ballroom). Here, you can see – and test drive – an advance copy of the atlas on the NIAS Press stand. And should you wish to meet and talk to the author, Robert Cribb will also be attending the conference and occasionally be on stand. 

Sale copies of the atlas should reach our warehouses and appear in bookshops by late April. Shortly before then, we’ll open up access to the companion website. More news about that later.

Remember, if you want to be updated about availability of the atlas, you can subscribe to a news service about this on the atlas book details page. The same service is available for all NIAS titles.
