The Banda Islands have long fascinated explorers, anthropologists, writers, photographers, filmmakers and artists. These 'islands of spicerie' have witnessed key moments in history, from the beginnings of global capitalism and colonisation to Indonesia's journey towards becoming a nation. Today the region is one the last true marine wildernesses in the world. The Banda Islands anthology features the words and images of those who have come under the islands' spell through the centuries, including;

Amitav Ghosh, Giles Milton, Elizabeth Pisani, Goenawan Mohamad, Des Alwi, Jean Couteau, Oscar Motuloh, M. Fadli, Tim Severin, John Seabrook, Made Wianta, Hanafi, Lawrence Blair, Michael Vatikiotis, Hanna Rambé, Janet DeNeefe, Beatrice Glow, Jay Subyakto, Phillip Winn and many more.
