‘This publication, the fruit of meticulous examination and research, presents one of the most distinguished collections of Iznik ceramics in a sophisticated and systematic way. Enriched with elaborate section drawings and examples of pottery sherds, it will appeal not only to scholars, connoisseurs and collectors but will also become a reference book for all admirers of Iznik ceramics.’
Hülya Bilgi, Director of the Sadberk Hanım Museum, Istanbul
