Daily Sabah: Qurans by master calligraphers digitalized for new project

Daily Sabah: Qurans by master calligraphers digitalized for new project. “From Quran copies by calligraphers Derviş Ali, Hüseyin Efendi, Kebecizade Mehmed Vasfi Efendi and Mustafa Hamid Boyabadi to paintings by Osman Hamdi Bey, Fausto Zonaro, Ivan Ayvazovski and Şeker Ahmed Paşa, Sakıp Sabancı Museum’s ambitious digitalization project digitalSSM brings together an impressive collection of manuscripts and paintings.” The Web site is at digitalssm.org. And while there is an “English” button on it for navigating, I found I got more information by letting Google translate each page.
