The Globeskimmer Guide to Istanbul

For my senior thesis project, I decided to create a special edition tour guide of Istanbul. As a Turkish-American myself, this project became a meaningful venture to explore more into the city where most of my family lives, and to reconnect with that side of my life. This package is complete with the following: a translation pocket book for access to quick phrases, lingo, and references for proper etiquette, a fully illustrated map to get the viewer excited about Istanbul, a pocket map for use upon travel, a postcard book of Turkish-specific cuisine and how to eat it, and a book of iconic sights you can’t miss.
