Nicely bound, beautiful pictures, well written, great initial tour of the regional variations, styles, and terminologies. A good starting point for collectors of older rugs, not as a buying guide for new rugs. Overall, an excellent value.- Chris Miller

My Oriental Rug Man suggested this book for me. It's for novice rug collectors and is a very helpful Oriental Rugs 101. He has every book on Oriental Rugs and says most of them contain the exact same information but this one is very practical. Nice enough to put on the coffee table.

Good reference book.
