For collectors oriental carpets are more than rugs, they are art forms worthy of study and treasured for their craftsmanship and beauty. This reference volume gives aficionados and scholars precise definitions of rug and textile terms used from the Western Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean (including Native American designs), identifies regions and ethnic groups, explains designs, motifs, and symbols, and profiles rugs of specific historical significance. Includes 600 drawings and illustrations (some in color) over which one can drool and dream. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
