Book Description

The first exhibition to focus on the Ottoman world’s most cosmopolitan accessory has resulted in a stunning show at the Sadberk Hanım, along with a beautifully printed scholarly catalogue. Reviewed by Philip Mansel in the forthcoming issue of Cornucopia (No 65), the book dwells in loving detail on the embroideries that adorned these madder-red leather cases. Each of the 91 examples has a full catalogue entry. Many of the wallets bear the names of their owners and year. Others tease the collector with bon mots and other messages of affection, such as the one that gave the show its title.

A mini-catalogue to 20 of the objects is available in paperback at £18.95 here
