Istanbul: City of Two Continents (英语) 精装 – 2008年10月1日
John Freely is Professor of Physics at the University of the Bosphorus in Istanbul. He is the author and co-author of more than thirty books on travel, including the renowned Strolling Through Istanbul and, most recently, Istanbul, the Imperial City and Inside the Seraglio.
Even the term "guides", however, may sound misleading as John's books cross the line between visual guides and art and make them difficult to classify. The Istanbul guide, for example, can be at the same time enormously helpful to somebody totally unfamiliar with the city by providing an excellent visual reference to the city's monuments but it can also please the experienced traveller (or Istanbul resident) by bringing to life scenes from the city's vibrant daily life (a one-man shoeshine stand, cafe, or a hot chestnut seller). All of the above is rendered colourful and rather romantic through John Cleave's unique art technique of transforming real photographs he himself has taken into watercolors.
