Written by Şerif Antepli, one of the first names that come to mind with regards to collecting culture in Turkey, "Istanbul's 100 Stamps" offers an opportunity to observe the cultural habits, aesthetic tastes and priorities in setting preferences during the periods when Istanbul-themed postage stamps were printed.Şerif Antepli, who had co-written "100 Collections of Istanbul," one of the previous installments of the series, along with Ömer Serkan Bakır in 2011, explains the purpose of preparing this book, saying: "I always wanted to continue my passion for stamps by preparing a book of stamps of this beautiful city since my childhood. I finally found a chance to fulfill my wish with this book titled, 'Istanbul's 100 Stamps.'"Antepli, who rigorously examined each stamp while preparing the book, found stamps printed at different times about the same places in Istanbul and had difficulty selecting the stamps to be included in the book. He said: "Even though I had difficulty selecting the stamps, I tried to use what I could not give up in the related sections. I tried to enrich the parts visually with gravures, old postcards and photos of today," Antepli said.
