Item description for Sinan Diaryz - A Walking Tour of Sinan's Monuments by Ann Pierpont...

Who was Mimar Sinan? Ann Pierpont, intrigued by what she had seen of the Ottoman dynasty's premier architect's work, embarked on an expedition to find out more about the man, his design sensibility and the milieu in which he lived. Surprised that this great man's work had not been made accessible to the public with a handy guide to his monuments, Pierpont undertook the project herself and has published a walking guide to Sinan's works in Istanbul and beyond. To make the details of his working life and its challenges more immediate, the author takes on the point of view of the Master himself, writing her guide in the format of Sinan's diary, with detailed descriptions of his architectural choices and innovations complementing the diary entries. For the novice Mimar Sinan enthusiast or for the architectural scholar who would like to know more about the master architect's life and lesser-known structures, this guide is a must!

Reviews - What do customers think about Sinan Diaryz - A Walking Tour of Sinan's Monuments?

Sinan Diaryz - A Walking Tour  May 4, 2008
Ann Pierpont shares her enthusiasm for Turkey, its history and antiquities, which has fueled her extensive research on Mimar Sinan's architectural monuments. Opting for a diary-styled format, she writes about the life and times of Sinan in anything but dry, historical text. She brings an artist's eye to the featured buildings and represents them with her own illustrations and photographs, complete with beautifully hand-painted frames. Blank pages are provided for personal comments and photos...a unique addition to a guidebook. We have just returned from 10 days in Istanbul and can say that her walking tours provided us with a focus on many of Sinan's masterpieces in Istanbul and environs. We recommend it highly.
Sinan Diaryz - A Walking Tour of Sinan's Monuments   Apr 27, 2008
This book is a must for anyone traveling to Turkey or anyone interested in the architecture of the Ottoman Empire.
It is written and presented in such an appealing style. The book is composed as if it is Sinan's diary during his years as an architect. The author has not only brought Sinan to life but also the times in which he lived.
The book also describes Sinan's most important works, where they are located, their history and how to find them.
To personalize the book, the author has framed a space along each site she describes to affix your own photograph.
A fascinating read. If you have not traveled to Turkey and seen Sinan's beautiful architecture this will be your inspiration!
