From the cover: “The Craft of Weaving rugs and carpets is one of the most ancient in the world. There are references to it in the Old Testament of the Bible and even in Homer’s Iliad; the oldest known carpet in existence, the Pazyryk carpet found in the mountains of Siberia, is probably about 2,500 years old. This book is much more than a collection of photographs of rugs and carpets, it is also an authoritative work in which the text, the plates, work together to illuminate the whole history and development of the art of carpet making.”
