The latest issue of Cornucopia, No 59, is just out, and it marks the start of a new phase for the magazine, as it goes online. From now on, all issues will be available for subscribers to scroll through the elegant pages not just of the latest issues, but back numbers too, making it a terrific searchable resource for all matters cultural in Turkey, past and present. Of course the beautiful print editions will continue to come off the presses to become valuable collectors’ items.
Each issue adds to our knowledge, and to the pages on Cornucopia’s website too. In this latest issue, for instance, Christopher Simon Sykes writes about his grandfather, Sir Mark Sykes, and their ancestral home of Sledmere in Yorkshire, which has a fabulous tiled Turkish room. Sledmere House has now been added to Cornucopia’s Travel pages as a site to visit in the UK.
The Man who Created the Middle East, Christopher Simon Sykes’ book about his grandfather, with delightful illustrations by Sir Mark, is available at a discount through Cornucopia’s Bookshop.
