Format: Paperback
This is an excellent, affordable and highly informative book on Iznik pottery that encompasses both the development of architectural tiling and of domestic-ware, both of which are generously supported by clear and detailed photographs. The book puts Iznik pottery into historical context with early Ottoman ceramics as Iznik pottery "did not spring on to an empty stage" and follows its development to its peak of perfection from the 1560s onwards, to its eventual decline in the 17th century. Of particular fascination is the chapter on "Iznik, China and the Western World" in which the author traces external influences on Iznik pattern-making. All commentaries are well cross-referenced to the illustrations and the book is an inspiration to any reader to visit the British Museum's wonderful collection of Islamic artefacts. Hilary Minor, Guildford, 2001.

This is a new area of interest for me and I found that the book greatly enhanced my visit to the British Museum collection of Iznik pottery. It is a well illustrated and very informative guide to the development of these richly coloured ceramics and how they relate to other traditions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Colorful and Informative 30 April 2013
By Reed Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
John Carswell takes you on a wonderful journey through history without being overly "academic" yet his attention to detail is noteworthy. I appreciate the quality of the book and the abundance of colorful examples of Iznik Pottery. Imagine 83 color photos in a book that is both compact and a great resource of information.

As an artist I find it is a treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Pictures, But Probably Too Technical For Most Readers 13 Aug. 2008
By Diego Banducci - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book, but is likely to prove too technical for the average reader. A more accessible, though more expensive, alternative is Iznik: The Artistry of Ottoman Ceramics. Its photographs are just as fine, and its content more extensive and readily understandable.
