Book review 05 : The Art of Calligraphy in the Islamic Heritage - M Ugur Derman/Nihad M Cetin

Book Info :

Title : The Art of Calligraphy in the Islamic Heritage
Author : M Ugur Derman & Nihad M. Cetin
Publisher : IRCICA
Printer : Yildiz Matbaacilik Istanbul
Pages : 282 pages
ISBN : 92-9063-074-4

Review :

This is a giant book measuring 17" x 12" x 1" as well as one of the most important books for calligraphy lover & collector. This book explains in brief about the development of calligraphy techniques during Ottoman period. Almost 80% of the content filled with beautiful & colorful pictures of calligraphy works of Ottoman calligraphers. However I am more intersted with the pictures of Ottoman Quranic pages. Useful for my reference. I purchased this book in Istanbul in 2007 for USD195.
