From the ancient Greek, Roman, Persian, and Byzantine eras to the Ottoman Empire to the present day, the Bosphorus strait is a storied and scenic region of Turkey. As the crossroads of the country’s European and Asian subsections, it is home to rich culture, incredible people, delicious food, unique architecture, and unmistakable style. Countless creatives have been awed and inspired here, including Tommy Hilfiger, Christian Louboutin, Nicky Haslam, and Cher. Turkish denizens and visitors alike are thrilled by the skyline, a breathtaking view of calming waters and magnificent bridges. But some of the best places to discover the style of the Bosphorus are within the private homes of its welcoming residents, who are always gracious and ready to entertain, and who know just the right balance of old and new to both pay homage to their country’s glorious past and herald its future. These vibrant personalities each have a story to tell, something that tethers them to this enchanted slice of the world. Bosphorus Private, showcasing twenty homes, is the melding of two continents, countless creative influences, and millennia of history.

Nevbahar Koç was born and raised on the Bosphorus. She lived in Los Angeles for many years and graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a fine arts degree. She currently serves on the board of Açıkkapı Social Responsibility Association to help children deprived of basic and social rights. Living in Istanbul with her family, she has hosted many friends from around the world in her magical city. Her passion for art, design, and photography, combined with her love of Istanbul, are the inspiration behind this book. İrem Kınay has collaborated on several books with Assouline, including The Grand Bazaar Istanbul, The Light of Istanbul, and Ottoman Chic. Her passion for the arts and for books resulted in a complete career change from banking and finance to become Assouline’s partner in Turkey. Since opening its doors in 2010, Assouline Istanbul has been a destination for a wide range of titles as well as for specially selected accessories for sophisticated libraries. Kınay’s sense of style has also resulted in many collaborations with artists and designers exclusively for Assouline.

Since its beginnings in 1994, Assouline has been dedicated to creating books that are as informational as they are beautiful works of art. The respect for the product and the process of creation is evident in every facet – the traditional technique of hand-binding covers, the imagery that transports the reader to another place and time, the luxurious thickness of each page. The passion and the attention to detail are like that of an haute couture atelier.

Known worldwide for bringing luxury to the publishing industry, Assouline produces one-of-a-kind books on fashion, art, architecture, photography, design, and travel, weaving a story of L’Art de Vivre with every publication. The Ultimate Collection is the epitome of the Assouline brand as it offers an unparalleled standard of excellence in the 21st century. Each book from the collection pays homage to the time-honored craft of bookbinding and pictures are individually hand-tipped, a process which requires cutting, gluing, and placing each photo onto the page. This level of craftsmanship yields the highest quality books in the world, truly pieces of art in their own right.
