For the Sultans Text by Patricia Baker and others

This limited edition, large-format book focuses on silks and garments created and woven for members of the Ottoman imperial family. Outstanding examples of kaftans designed and tailored for ceremonial and ordinary use have been selected from the collections of Topkapi Palace. The images presented in this volume, supported by expertly-written commentaries, introduce a relatively unexplored aspect of the Ottoman aesthetic achievement. Superb full-page images, outstanding color reproduction and printing.

30 by 41 cms, 220 pages (145 color pages). Hardbound in special Japanese cloth and presented in a slipcase.
