Beautiful photographs; informative, readable text.

I told my teacher after the class that she'd opened the door to a whole new world for me, and this book just blew that door off its hinges.

A fine introduction to the subject and invaluable to the lover of Iznik artistry.

I'm not a fan of art or religion, I'm a practical sort of girl. I took a class on Islamic art though, and found myself fascinated by Ottoman ceramics. Finding this book in the library, I sat down and flipped through it, and to my surprise, found myself crying. Crying, because everything in this book was so beautiful. I've never done that before. I have to buy this book. I must own this. I've never felt so moved by anything my whole life, and I don't say that lightly. The photographs are exquisite, the details visible are finer than the unaided eye can see. The colors are beyond words. The historical context presented is well-written, interesting and exciting. I told my teacher after the class that she'd opened the door to a whole new world for me, and this book just blew that door off its hinges.

Buy this book.

I have been a collector of pottery for years. I own several pieces of Iznik pottery because I find the artistry superb.

My husband gave me this book for Christmas and I have been learning so much more about the pieces I own, the culture behind them, the motifs, etc. The photos in the book and the quality of the print process and binding are fabulous.

I am now proud to display this book on the table beside my pottery collection.

If you are a lover of beautiful art, a student of Ottoman culture or just a fan of gorgeous books... Do not think twice. This book s a wonderful publication!

This is the authoritative work on the magnificent ceramics and tilework of 16th century Ottoman Turkey, one of the high points of Islamic art. Beautiful photographs; informative, readable text.

I saw this book at the Metropolitan Museum of Art gift shop for $80, which of course I didn't want to pay, so I got it on Amazon for about half. Now I see the price has dropped, and of course there are some for even less than what I piad, which should encourage everyone to BUY THIS BOOK. I'm not normally a coffee table book kind of girl, but this one is the one to have if you like decorative arts. The colors are so striking, and the generosity of photos made me agree with the first reviewer, who was so struck by this book she couldn't get it out of her mind. I couldn't either! And now I own it, and for the times when I can't be bothered to heft it up (it's a big book), just staring at the cover photo of that carnation-like mandala of a flower makes me happy.

This book has more information about Iznik pottery
than the book by Maria Ribeiro, yet, both books are excellent.
Many stunning color pictures throughout the book,
Highly recommended.

Gorgeous photographs along with fascinating historical information. Far more than just a coffee table book. Provides inspiration for artists and lovers of beauty in full measure.
