In her richly illustrated book, artist and author Laurelie Rae shares her memories of some of the most beautiful and historic monuments in Turkey. Join her on your journey through Asia Minor—one of the world's oldest and most important trade routes along the Silk Road, wandering through the ancient streets of the Ottoman capitals of Istanbul, Edirne, and Bursa, or entering into the Seljuk period stone-carved masterpieces throughout Anatolia.
Rae's splendid drawings of the interior and exterior of the monuments and the inspirational text accompanying them with a focus on historical, cultural and architectural elements will transport you to the ancient land of the Seljuks and Ottomans. Let the illustrations be your guide to the vast world of Turkish Islamic Art and Architecture as you forge your own path and discover the treasures the Seljuks and Ottomans left behind. Visit the lavish monuments from the time of the Anatolian Seljuks to the early and high Ottoman eras, whose masterpieces include Topkapi Palace, the imperial mosque complexes, colleges, hospitals, public baths, and water fountains, and marvel at the detail that has left no corner bare. Explore all the nooks and cracks and you will be sure to experience a piece of history that will leave you dreaming of the days of old.
