Fare Issue 1: Istanbul

Fare Issue 1: Istanbul

Regular price €13 Unit price  per 

Tax included.

Istanbul is a stunning metropolis uniquely poised across two continents. An imperial capital to three sprawling empires, the city has been shaped and reshaped by a unique mix of migrant cultures spanning from Eastern Europe to North Africa and the Middle East.

Fare's debut issue is a collection of stories, vignettes, and beautiful imagery that brings you on a well-rounded, inspiring, and insightful journey into the heart of the city like no other guide or magazine can. You'll be led through the beautiful winding streets of Istanbul by some of the city's finest artists, musicians, chefs, writers, and historians. With them, you'll reach into Istanbul's near and distant pasts, explore the conflicts and emotions of this complex place, and taste the richness of its diverse culture.

In Issue 1: Istanbul:

  • An old man's closet-sized shop and ingenious system that supplies tea for hundreds in the Grand Bazaar

  • Istanbul's ancient love affair with the bonito fish and pickled lakerda

  • The influence of coffee in Turkish culture and the controversial coffeehouses of Ottoman Istanbul

  • Old school food shopping and a carnivore's paradise at the butcher shops of the Kadiköy Market

  • A night out at the meyhanes, taverns that find their origins in Byzantine Constantinople

  • Kuzguncuk’s 700-year-old urban garden, one of the last of its kind to survive the city's development

Specs: 170mm x 240mm, 196 pages, lithographically printed on Arctic matt and Cyclus Offset stock; perfect bound.
