The Bazaars of Istanbul
Available in Stock
Like the city itself, Istanbul's bazaar quarter is a meeting of opposites: East and West, ancient and modern, beautiful and chaotic. This richly illustrated book takes the reader on a journey through a world filled with fascinating history and people. Separate sections explore the various parts of the Bazaar District, trace their long traditions of craftsmanship, and celebrate their merchandise: food, spices, jewellery, carpets, textiles, ceramics, leatherwork, books... The volume includes 30 traditional Turkish recipes.
