An illustrated manuscript which dates back to the years between 1460-1480, is “Küllüyat-ı Katibi” (complete works of Katibi) of Semseddin Muhammed bin Abdullah Nisaburi, whose pen name was Katibi. The small miniatures of this work were made by two different designer-painters and one of them resembles the miniatures of Dilsuzname which was made in Edirne. The treatment of natural elements, especially cypresses and huge flower bouquets lined up on the horizon, would become the defining characteristics of later Ottoman miniature art.
