Illustrated Istanbul

Orhan Pamuk

ISBN 9780571330348

A sumptuous photographic edition of Orhan Pamuk's bestselling memoir.

Like the Dublin of Joyce and Jan Morris' Venice, Orhan Pamuk's bestselling Istanbul: Memories of a City is a triumphant encounter of place and sensibility, beautifully written and immensely moving.

Since the publication of Istanbul, Pamuk has continued to add to his collection of photographs of Istanbul. Now, he has selected a range of photographs for Illustrated Istanbul, linking each new image to his memoir.

This lavish selection of 450 photographs features contributions from Ara Guler, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Istanbul's characteristic photography collectors, and contains previously unpublished family photographs from the author's archives.

The Author

Orhan Pamuk, is the author of many celebrated books, including The White Castle, Istanbul and Snow. In 2003 he won the International IMPAC Award for My Name is Red, and in 2006 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

The Museum of Innocence was an international bestseller, praised in the Guardian as 'an enthralling, immensely enjoyable piece of storytelling.' Orhan Pamuk lives in Istanbul.

Pamuk describes, with a marvellously painterly eye for detail, what it is that he loves so much about this city . . . It makes me yearn . . . to be once again in Istanbul. Noel Malcolm, Daily Telegraph
