Beautiful enough to be a coffee-table book, authoritative enough to satisfy scholars, and always a treat to read, for almost three decades Cornucopia has been the magazine for connoisseurs of Turkey – and for anyone who would like to delve deeper into the wonders of this country, with its extraordinarily rich history, culture and cuisine.

Latest issue

In a special 176-page edition, Cornucopia 60 celebrates:

• Istanbul’s myriad museums, from the Topkapı to Atatürk’s Art Deco Florya Sea Pavilion

• And treasures further afield, such the jaw-dropping new Troy Museum on the Dardanelles, and Eskişehir’s new museum of modern art, OMM, by the visionary Japanese architect Kengo Kuma



Other highlights include:

• Istanbul’s retrospective of the ‘1914 Generation' artist, Avni Lifij – ‘No one better caught the subtle, shifting tones of Istanbul’

• the British Museum’s exploration of the roots of Orientalism and the art and literature inspired by Trojan history and a 3,000-year-old love story

• Robert Ousterhout’s magnificent new oeuvre on Byzantine architecture

• how an 18th-century tanbur was brought back to life

• an Ottoman princess’s colourful life in her own words

• the simple truths revealed in the poetry of Georgios Seferis

• and where to find the perfect kebab



Finally, ripe for rediscovery is the modest but marvellous medlar.
