Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
A unique study of 26 rare wooden mosques from Samsun, in the Central Black Sea Region, and as much a travel account of the author's personal ambition to record these vanishing structures as it is a detailed study of these charming monuments themselves. “I began this study with travelling and finished it in the same way. During the journeys I took along the Istanbul-Samsun, Istanbul-Melbourne and Istanbul-Amasya routes, my heavy bag filled up with an ever increasing number of documents that took up the most important corner of the places where I stayed. Even during the times I was not able to work for a number of weeks due to health problems and other reasons, they were always on my mind and before my eyes.” (from the author's Foreword)
