Temples of Knowledge by Ahmet Ertuğ

leave a comment »

Ahmet Ertuğ is a name many Turks have no idea about. A simple man to many, some may remember his name from the walls of Hagia Sophia or Ephesus.

I don’t know him in person. Never met him. But I am sure he is a man of fine taste. I saw the hardcover version of his great book Temples of Knowledge several months ago. A great work of art. A work of dedication. A photo book of historical libraries brought to life by a man who has an eye of an architecht.

I consider myself as a mild bibliophile. I was buying books with the money I got from my elderly on holy days. My book buying spree continues even today. I love looking into bookshops, especially when I am abroad. I had visited the university library continuously during my study. With all these in mind I fell in love with Ahemt Ertuğ’s Temples of Knowledge.

The book contains some of the best photographs of Europe’s historical libraries. From France to Germany, Italy to Portugal you can stroll through the finest libraries of Europe. The book is printed and binded in Italy and published only 400 copies. It is costly. You can enquire about the price from the home page of the book.

You can read more about Ahmet Ertuğ on his own webpage.
