Demystifying a confusing and intimidating subject, Oriental Rugs Today is the first book devoted exclusively to new pieces.
It discusses issues of dye and finish, looks country by country at examples from every major contemporary source, and profiles the artisans who revived the use of hand-spun wool and natural dyes.
Written for both aficionado and novice, this edition includes 20 percent more material and new information on Nepalese and Iranian rugs, making this must-have guide to the subject. 100 colour photos are included.
