Panoramic landscapes of Cappadocia.
Istanbul: Ertug & Kocabiyik (Borusan), 2003. - JOLIVET-LEVY, CATHERINE - (Text) - AHMET ERTUG - VASKEN DEGIRMENTAS (Photos) Panoramic landscapes of Cappadocia. Istanbul: Ertug & Kocabiyik (Borusan), 2003. (38x50 cm.) 4to., 292 p., color photos. In English. Panoramic Landscapes of Cappadocia is a work of art in its own right that takes the reader into and through the astonishing world of the valleys of Cappadocia. The term "Cappadocia" today refers to a specific region of volcanic valleys and bizarre rock formations-a place where extraordinary physical surroundings and human ingenuity have combined to create an intriguing and dramatic landscape of sometimes bewitching, sometimes monumental beauty. Successive civilizations and cultures have left their marks here, excavating and carving houses, tombs, workplaces, and shrines out of the living rock. Far from destroying the landscape however, their efforts have actually added to it, creating structures for posterity that are as singular as they are at one with nature. Like its subject, Panoramic Landscapes of Cappadocia is also unique as a book offering a stunning array of broad panoramic views of this magical world. The images are accompanied by an informative introductory essay and commentaries by Catherine Jolivet-Levy, a respected scholar on Cappadocian archaeology and medieval art. Photographer Ahmet Ertug’s panoramic images are presented as fold-outs that measure 156 by 36 cms when fully extended. There are 30 of these panoramic plates, each one of which is affixed directly to the spine. Each book is individually bound by hand. Design Concept: Ahmet Ertug.

The translations of Catherine Jolivet-Levy’s text from French was done Philip Ditchfield, and style edited by Robert Bragner. Original bdg. Original slipcase. Mint. Oversize and very heavy volume.
