Silks

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.

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.
