Description
"Antique Oriental carpets are objects of fascination the world over. This richly textured, lavishly illustrated guide enables the reader to recognize the stylistic characteristics of a wide variety of carpets and to appreciate more fully the beauty and history of each." "The first part of the book charts the development of carpets as objects of both artistic merit and craftsmanship, tracing their history from surviving sixteenth-century examples up to the early twentieth century. From the Zel-i-Sultan motif to the herati design, patterns, techniques, materials, styles, and colors are discussed in detail. The second part of the book focuses on the major areas of production, including Anatolia, Persia, the Caucasus, Central Asia, India, and China, as well as a few European sites. Over 350 illustrations depict hundreds of examples of colorful rugs and include informative diagrams and drawings." "The illuminating text and the extensive illustrations of The Bulfinch Guide to Carpets make this inclusive and practical guide a must-have for carpet lovers, collectors, decorators, craftsmen, and all those who appreciate the intrigue and luxury of Oriental carpets."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
