8°. 47 pp. with black and white illustrations, illustrated card wrappers, stapled (Signed by the author on the title page, dedication by the author in pencil on p. 2, contemporary owner’s signature on the inner side of the cover and on the last page, contemporary poem in ink (by the owner?) on the inner side of the rear cover, minor staining, wrappers with light wear to the corners, otherwise in a good condition).
A tastefully designed book with poetry by a Turkish artist Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu, who was known as a painter and author or monumental public works, is decorated with artist’s stunning illustrations. In compartment with the previous lot in our catalogue, printed in 1948, Bedri Rahmi by the early 1950s reached his recognizable style with heavy black contours, combining the Turkish folk patterns with contemporary international art directions.
Bedri Rahmi’s brother Sabahattin was an esteemed author and film producer, and his sister Mualla Eyüboğlu was a first Turkish female architect.
