A specialist on folklore, Prof. H. Glassie spent years to study the Turkish art and artists today, i.e. who are still living and producing. The meticulous and longitudinal work progressed with collecting for Museum of International Folk Art and culminated in a final exhibition. The author starts with Istanbul and moves on to Anatolia, to various towns and remote villages, telling about the artists and their art and lives. Not only about the tiles, carpets, woodwork, blacksmiths, and so on but also on his experiences and friendships with them and other natives. The work is a must for those seeking a deep insight into the Turkish way of life and producing the art. 947 pp with numerous b/w illustrations. Heavy volume. Please contact for postage cost.
