"A beautiful, large-format book, this limited edition 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 new and hitherto relatively unexplored aspect of the Ottoman aesthetic achievement to the reading public. Superb full-page images, outstanding color reproduction and printing. Hardbound in special Japanese cloth and presented in a slipcase." [SORB TA-12].
