Ural Akyüz illustration book

Ural Akyüz was given a total of 21 artworks in the books about the history of Illustration Art in Turkey.

After a while, I can't stop without mentioning. Alternative Publishing really brought a very valuable piece formed with devoted work in the illustration art in Turkey.
The 2-volume work, starting with the first examples of illustration art and following the development up to the present, is a work that includes the words of the publisher and the works of master artists and plays an important role in enlightening the sector.

In my opinion, it can be considered the first in Turkey and prepared a work of great devotion. It immediately stands out from its print quality, carefully selected works and content information..

I was informed about this book with the message the publisher sent me during the preparation phase. I did not count one by one, but I think I could be the artist with the highest number of works (total 21) in the book.

I also respectfully commemorate our valuable teacher Prof. Nazan Erkmen who passed away last year. Seeing her in the preface of the book also touched me.

I wanted to thank our dear publishers and everyone who contributed, both for this valuable work and for the value they give to us. Those who are curious can learn more about the book by clicking here.

from the preface of the book:

The "Illustration" book, prepared by Alternatif Publishing, will take its place as a historical document introducing Republican era illustrators and works. It is of great importance in terms of revealing the place and value of the depicted Turkish illustrators in the Republic Period as well as the artistic value of the illustrated books...
This document will allow the generations who will create works in the field of Turkish book illustration and illustration in the future to make comparisons within a certain chronology and will shed light on the introduction of the artists working in this field. I thank and sincerely congratulate Oğuz AKÇEŞME on behalf of Alternatif Publishing, who made a great effort for the preparation of this valuable book and mobilized all its means to make it perfect, and Ali Tekin ÇAM, who was the editor of the book.

"Illustration art", which is described as illustrating texts, is an art that requires great mastery.
This book also undertakes a great mission in terms of documenting together the artists who work in this field in our country and work in international illustration.

Of course, besides the artists mentioned in the text below, there are many qualified artists worthy of great praise for their work in this field since the beginning of Turkish illustration art. The beginning of Turkish illustration art in the historical flow; I believe it would be useful to give a brief information about the illustrators and their works.

Best regards, _ Prof. Nazan Erkmen
