Beginner's Guide To Oriental Rugs - 2nd Edition

Authored by Linda Kline

Publisher's Weekly Review:

This basic guide to oriental rugs is organized to the advantage of the novice collector. A comprehensive section describes and illustrates the 41 most common motifs (geometric, floral and medallion styles and their variations) and the geographic areas where these motifs are produced. Once the motif of a rug is identified, readers can find a listing of the villages or tribes that characteristically employ that design, and can further discriminate according to the type of weave used in each region. Persian, Caucasian, Turkish and Turkoman rugs are covered, as well as those made in India, Pakistan and Roumania. The handsome color photos are accompanied by captions detailing outstanding features of workmanship and design. No attempt is made to categorize rugs by value or price, but Kline does note rugs that are not of collector quality.
