Great Carpets of the World : With their rich colors, variegated patterns, and soft, seductive textures, their ageless beauty and utility, carpets have been a source of pleasure and comfort throughout the world since time immemorial. The seven authors of this lavishly illustrated book, each of them a recognized expert, lead us step by step through their respective fields, revealing the secrets of the 'trade', explaining production and restoration, exploring unresolved problems and their fascination. Only the very finest examples of the weaver's art have been selected as illustrations, and they come from collections both private and public. Moreover, they are seen in their living contexts, not excerpted and shown in sterile isolation. NOTE: This is a Scratch and Dent version and accordingly MAY NOT have a dust jacket.
