17,000 ISLANDS OF IMAGINATION by Jez O'Hare and Jeremy Allan
Limited Edition... only a few copies left!
The book features a perspective of Indonesia few have seen: from the air. From the window of a commercial airliner in flight, Indonesia is a carpet of green fields and blue seas. But from a low-flying aircraft, details on the ground are clearly visible, while the vantage point is sufficiently lofty to encompass the full splendor of trackless forests, towering volcanic cones, and endless sea, the pride of Indonesia from Sabang to Merauke. 17,000 Islands of Imagination presents the natural grandeur of the land and sea of Indonesia in a stunning collection of photographs taken from the photographer’s custom-made microlight. It portrays Indonesia’s vast and rich beauty to the world as one will be taken to “fly” across its lands, seas, and thousands of its islands along the equator. A book that will take one’s imagination to freely glide and define all aspects of life beyond such beauty.
Thousands of islands to imagine.

A member of FASI, the Indonesian Aero Sports Federation, his aerial photographs are taken from helicopters, airplanes, and his own microlight, paramotor, drones, and kites.
Jeremy Allan has used his extensive familiarity with this nation’s culture, society, and history to introduce the people and places of the Indonesian archipelago to a global readership since becoming a permanent resident of Indonesia in 1980. Through a variety of media and promotional literature, he has sought to portray Indonesia in a fair and positive manner and to promote the interests of Indonesian businesses, cultural and social organizations, and the nation itself.
