Early Ottoman Art: The Legacy of the Emirates presents the Turkish Emirates and the arrival of the Ottomans -- who were to become a mighty power -- and looks at how, during the 14th and l5th centuries, a new synthesis was achieved by blending their Asian background with local tastes of western Anatolia and Thrace.

The Museum with No Frontiers Exhibition catalogues are wonderfully illustrated, scientific reference books and thematic travel guides. Their authors are researchers and scholars from the country discovered through the eyes of the people who live there.
