The oh-so short summer has come to an end and as fall slowly winds its way back into our lives, our yearning for the beach will be replaced by overcast skies that are perfect for drinking coffee with a book in hand. Yet we may not always have access to some of the most interesting books by prestigious publishers at our homes.
The first and only of its kind in Istanbul, the Vitali Hakko Creative Industries Library is a haven for art, fashion, architecture and photography enthusiasts who crave the expensive books on these topics but lack the funds to buy them. This comprehensive and constantly updated library houses over 10,000 books, including limited editions and signed copies, all open to public viewing within the library. Marilyn and Friends, Dreaming Small, The Photographic Art of Hoyningen-Huene, Who’s Who in Fashion, and many other great books await your curious eyes.
Kuşbakışı Caddesi No.35, Nakkaştepe
The library can be visited for free during the weekdays by appointment only. Call (0216) 554 08 54 to make an appointment.
