While the beauty of Hartono Sumarsono's batik pesisir collection may be appreciated in the book "Batik Pesisir: An Indonesian Heritage", the book "Benang Raja: Binding the Beauty of Batik Pesisir" invites us to relish in the enchanting details of the head, body, papan, and margins of batik cloth. This book reveals the ups-and-downs in the production of batik tulis, the uncommon patterns in a number of unique batiks, and the use of batik as a means of storytelling; from the stories of wayang (Javanese shadow puppet), Flash Gordon to Cinderella. Batik can even be used to record historical events!
