* Aziz Sancar EX-LIBRIS STORY
By Şükrü Ertürk
When the Aziz Sancar Nobel Prize commemorative stamp, published by the PTT in December 2015, was shared on Facebook, many comments were made. With the interesting interpretation of Yusuf Keş, “The best portrait painter in engraving Şükrü Ertürk, a job fell on our teacher, a beautiful engraving will make a stamp for a lifetime”, the perception that a new stamp will be issued must have been created. Unfortunately, this proposal could not be met, could not be realized. Unfortunately, we have not had a printing house that can print taille-douce engraving stamps in Turkey until now, and I had not received a request for a new stamp from the PTT.
In this case, I decided to make Ex-libris in the name of Aziz Sancar. I asked for help from Orhan Bursalı, a close friend of Aziz Sancar, writer for Cumhuriyet Newspaper, who wrote the book about the story of Aziz Sancar and Nobel, and attended the award ceremony regarding the visuals I would use. I was very happy when I sent Orhan Bursalı Aziz Sancar with the message that included my idea of making an ex-libris, expressing my visual need, and my ex-libris attached. I received a message from America, with the images attached, with thanks. I started exlibris.
In the book Aziz Sancar and the Road to Nobel, his life story that started in Mardin and continued in Istanbul and later in the USA, his family, his student years, his research at the university, the difficulties he faced, his successes, his struggle against his rivals, his patience in scientific research it was very impressive.
He was expressing his patriotism with the sentence “I am the Artifact of the Republic of Turkey, I am loyal to Atatürk and the principles of the Republic”, and proved his patriotism by donating the Nobel’s gold medal to the Anıtkabir museum. He was proving his commitment to Anatolian culture by naming his award-winning article “Yunus Emre Epic”. He showed his consistent, scientistic attitude towards the Central Bank, demanding that the wrongly drawn DNA helix on the reverse of the 5 TL banknote be corrected.
I thought in many ways how to visualize this amazing success story, strong personality. I looked at the videos explaining it, the visuals of DNA repair. I found the majestic portrait I needed online. In the photo, it was as if his left eyelid had drooped due to the ailment. In other photos, the eyes looked healthy. I straightened my eyelid and directed my gaze towards the viewer.
I gave priority to portraits in my designs, placing Seljuk starry motifs in the background, as I was of the opinion that portraits would provide the best personal belonging in ex-libris. Aziz Sancar’s portrait, when the hexagonal helices in the DNA repair model overlapped with the six-armed Seljuk starling, the two main images of the design became clear. The electron microscope he used in his research and experiments at nanoscale and the light collider called synchotron, and Yunus Emre’s lines “Step by step forward / Into five realms / Eighteen thousand hijabs / I passed in a mountain”, which coincided with his journey on the DNA mountain, were other visuals.
I mixed all this in my mind. In the sketches I made in pencil and later in the computer environment, the vertical axis symmetrical design dominated. The portrait on the main axis continued with the negative lines with a six-star star on the right side, I put the portraits of his parents in the hexagons. The starlings moved to the left of the portrait, turning into a mountain of DNA as it descended. The negative striation helix emerging from it merged into the DNA repair pattern. I placed the mini portraits of Aziz Sancar in two circles on the DNA mountain in this section. Below I placed a network of brain cells around the circular DNA repair model. On the right side, under the shoulder, the six-point star continued with positive lines around the Nobel medal. I placed Ayyıldız on the middle axis, Yunus Emre’s first stanza on the road below, and the light collider in elliptical appearance on top of that. A single line ex-libris Aziz Sancar writing at the bottom, my ŞE logo at the bottom.
I sent this design to Aziz Sancar to get his opinions and thoughts. He expressed his appreciation and thanks. When I suggested adding Atatürk’s signature, I got the answer that would be great. The first stage has been finalized.
After the copper mold was prepared for engraving, each unit in the design was individually transferred and engraved. Linear perspective was applied so that the portrait could be in the foreground. The lines, letter lengths, line thicknesses and depths of the poem were processed with a certain transition. The relationship between lines and tonal values was checked with proof prints made with one color. At the end of the engraving process, color proof prints were started. It was taken into account that the colors and tonal values were compatible with the story. Eight different inks were rubbed into their parts from dark to light and cleaned with small plastic spatulas. The specially coated paper of Hahne Mühle was printed with the meticulousness of banknotes. All these transactions took place over a period of 18 months.
The first rehearsal edition of this ex-libris, which is a gift from my heart to Aziz Sancar, the work of Atatürk’s Turkey, in return for his achievements, coincided with Atatürk’s commemoration day on November 10, I shared it on Facebook. Then I made 10 original prints and sent them to America.
