This study deals with the Ottoman art of book ornamentation, and its evolution and development between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries. This period of development will be explained by considering bookbinding methods and techniques, and materials. Our interpretations are supported by binding samples selected from various libraries. Bookbinding samples, made with different materials by using different techniques, were selected in order to show differences among them in terms of this development and evolution. Generally speaking the study examines the development of the bookbinding art in the Ottoman Empire through the stated centuries. This study will not include comparison with European bookbinding practices as European influence upon the binding art in the Ottoman Empire began in the nineteenth century.
