Our Page Banners

Ottoman History Podcast employs a revolving banner based on special code that serves the visitor with a weighted but random selection from over 100 images pertaining to the history of the Ottoman Empire and beyond. Note that many of the images are cropped heavily, and some contain further modifications. Our banners are made using GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). The font is Josefin Sans Bold. 

The sources for the images in our banner are as follows by type and order of significance:
