Title: Turkish Traditional Art Today
Description: Bloomingdale: Indiana University Press, 1993. Hardcover. Illustrated by Hundreds of black and white illustrations; Massive. Published jointly with Turkish Ministry of Culture. Many rugs and textiles. "This vast work, approaching a thousand pages, with a comparable number of illustrations, is astonishingly absorbing and easy to read, a rich source of cognitive and affective understanding of a culture at once so far from ours and so intimately close to it, whose insights and principles apply to many artistic traditions in many lands... It is Mr. Glassie's concern with the artist's view of truth, his complete indifference to the elegant pretension of word and thought that to one extent or another has plagued Western historians of art since Vasari, and above all his deep curiosity and willingness to learn and listen from the past and from the present, from the scholar and from the artist, that constitute the miraculous elements of Turkish Traditional Art Today" Walter B. Denny, The New York Times Book Review "Turkish Traditional Art Today is a proud and triumphant work ... magnificent" The Turkish Times "This beautifully produced work examines the traditional folk arts of Turkey ... comprehensive, well-researched, and clearly written" Library Journal "... a work of monumental significance." -Oriental Rug Review ; 7; 947 pp.. Very Good in Very Good dustjacket; 8.5 x 10 Hardback in dustjacket in Very Good condition .
