The Bazaars of Istanbul

$28.20 USD

The bazaar quarter of Istanbul is a mirror of the city itself: many-faceted and hectic, extraordinarily beautiful and chaotic at the same time.

On the historic peninsula, centuries-old market halls and mosques share space with kiosks and new concrete buildings. Spacious stores with brightly lit window displays compete with tiny cluttered shops in dark alleys. This is a place where the Thousand and One Nights and global chic come together, a meeting place of opposites. 300 color illustrations
