As rightly quoted by the publicist Ms Meru: "There are such a lot of pieces of fascinating history and inspiring places when you start discovering the Buddhist architecture of Southeast Asia. We wanted to start sharing as much as possible via social media channels even before the book is released. The book itself is an innovative format, as it contains a lot of text explaining the architecture and history but it is large sized like a coffee table book in order to accommodate hundreds of new photographs and architectural diagrams."
