A welcome collector book for Turkish rugs. There are few dedicated books to this overwhelming economy of rug producers. The country is at a apparent historic high on selection of types, with the book touching on facets that help buyers decide. The Silk rug producers have two world famous lines that are only sketchily covered. But for the era written, the coverage is good. Turkish producers have moved forward since this book was written.
Great book. Wonderful photos and informative text. If you are interested in Turkish rugs, this book is a valuable resource.
