Many thanks for this heads up. I may plan to attend.

I reckon this announcement may feel more at home in the swap section... ;)

Upon getting published, I'd love to hear what others think about it; Marco feel free to post a review if you get early access!

Regards,
Kai

I had the book. Graphically the book is beautiful and professional. The many photographs are beautiful as beautiful are the handles. The only thing I don't like is that the title of the cover is in English while the text inside the book is Indonesian .... and this is really very strange also because the written text is not much and a little "translation effort" by the author would be been appreciated by all collectors outside Indonesia.

Frankly i'm fine with this announce remain right here in this forum as long as no one is posting sales information. For that a post in Swap certainly should be made.
The same is true of review threads, again as long as sales info is kept off the page.

Not having seen the book i will say that Hengki is a regular contributor to a keris facebook group i frequent and has shown some extraordinarily beautiful and rare hilts. I would expect to see those and others in this book. Hopefully the printing quality will be good and the book is well illustrated.

Hum, I have seen some krisses displayed by this gentleman in some Indonerian kris books and at kris fairs in Indonesia and my impression was rather mixed, basically I felt that many pieces were "enhanced", any other opinion?
Regards
