Through the centuries, Armenian artisans and artists have bequeathed Istanbul with a treasure of crafted articles. Scholars Marchese and Breu have spent more than a decade working closely with the Armenian Patriarchate of Istanbul to inventory, photograph, analyze, and describe the artifacts held in the storerooms of Istanbul Armenian churches. Accompanied by 220 colored plates and discussion of history and artistic forms, this book is a detailed description of this valuable and rare collection.
