This is an oversized books with numerous color illustrations, meant as a basic guide to oriental rugs. The author warns that it should not be regarded as an investment guide. The book begins with a chapter of history on the rugs and explains different types (e.g. prayer rugs). The large categories of rugs are discussed in a general way. There is a chapter on motifs with clear line-drawing illustrations. The book then has chapters on each large grouping of rugs, breaking them down to local variations. There is generally one picture for each type of rug. I like that all of the pictures are in color and that a wide range of rugs is illustrated. In addition, there are pictures of weavers and dyers, rugs at use in the Orient and Europe. ( )
