I can't get enough of these posts!
Yet another great post!
these covers are fantastic! - great choice from the Turkuler.
Thank you for these great book covers! I have noticed that nowadays many Turkish book covers are cheaply designed and especially typography is bad. But maybe that's a problem of the book and design market in Turkey in general...Erkin Koray rocks! :)
this must be for thanksgiving right? (turkey)
An interesting synaesthetic equivalence arises listening to song or seeing typography in an unknown language: the musical or visual forms, atmospheres, compositions bleed into the mysterious words to allusive/elusive effect. All the books seem potential mystery stories; on one hands grasp at a sense the bars deny; on another electricity pylons hum coded messages about the land to the sky. Koray translates this into the description of a journey made in a dream that's yet to finish.
hey there, overall great blog that i follow regularly, but today you touched my heart with a video of the great great Erkin Koray. amazing!
yay! erkin koray... nice to find him here... he's amazing... man all these covers are incredible....!!!!!
your hero Erkin Koray is a fascist, supporting (without a shame) the ultra-nationalist/fascist party (MHP) in Turkey
Oh man. Does it make it any better that I thought he was already dead?Let's qualify by saying "musical hero"... for that song... and that video.
