"İstanbul’un Alternatif Tarihi (Istanbul's Alternative History)" is a story book that is based on the history of Istanbul, written by Barış Uzunhan. Although the stories seem to be real, they are completely fictional, and the author insistently reminds this. It has an entertaining and witty language with historical details.
We made the cover design and text string for the book. We were inspired by the author's words: "This city didn't come out of a banana peel!”. We created an image with the combination of Galata Tower and banana, one of the monuments of Istanbul.
The book is a social responsibility project. All income is given to students as scholarships. We take part in this project for support, without any profit motive.
The writer who fictionalized very realistic stories. But all of them are all fake stories you know ... Like the fabulous history of Istanbul, truth and lies are intertwined.
