• The Hermitage: A Palace and a Museum

    Ahmet Ertug

    It is hard to exaggerate the magnificence of this huge book. There is an introduction by the Director of the State Hermitage Museum, Mikhail Piotrovsky, and further contributions by Michael Forsyth, Marion Harney and Geraldine Norman. But the salient feature is the pictures by the remarkable Turkish photographer, Ahmet Ertug. Dimensions are 48 x 40 cm, so the 102 colour plates are immense, and they are beautifully reproduced with state-of-the-art technology. It is beautifully bound in red silk, and comes in a slipcase.

    We stock as many of Mr Ertug’s astonishing books as are in print – some 20 of them at present. Please email or telephone us for details, or come and browse them at Sandoe’s. There are also some special editions occasionally available.
