This work presents the most important calligraphic treasures from the Sabanci Collection, a private trove that includes Ottoman calligraphy dating from the 15th to the 20th century. It displays the work of nearly every important Ottoman calligrapher and all major types of the art. Included here are illuminated Korans and prayer manuals, decorated albums of calligraphic exercises, and "levha" - large-scale lettered compositions that were framed as decorations. In addition, there are 11 royal edicts, or "Ferman", each surmounted by the sultan's imperial monogram.
