Oriental Carpets: A Complete Guide by Murray L., Jr. Eiland
5 Star

'Oriental Rugs - A Complete Guide' is quite reasonably priced for a work of such size, quality, and number of colour plates, especially when written by so eminent an authority as Murray Eiland. With wonderful full color reproductions of the subject, this book is a piece of art in itself. After a wonderful introduction, the chapters are regionally oriented, making it easy to access specific information, or get an in-depth history.    View Details

Oriental Carpet Design: Traditional Motifs, Patterns, Symbols by P.R.J. Ford
5 Star

In this review, the author draws upon his experience in the trade, in order to demonstrate how to recognize the different structural and design features of oriental rugs and carpets. All the types made throughout the Orient - from the Balkans to Peking - are grouped here, not by place of manufacture but by design, illuminating the history of each pattern. The author shows the vital influence of the ethnographic backgrounds of the various carpet-producing centres over all important designs.    View Details
