Lavishly illustrated in colour and black and white, it discusses the history of the craft in all the major centres of production, gives an area by area account of all the main types, and also describes the carpet market, with hints on how to judge and buy. The chapters on Oriental and African rugs cover the history of these finest of floor and wall decorations, including accounts of the finest classic carpets of the Safavid period in Persia and a history of the many different types over the past 100 years. In the European chapters Isabelle Anscombe examines the development of the European carpet industry from its beginnings in Moorish Spain to the highly sophisticated French Aubusson and Savonnerie carpets and modern carpet production in England and Scandinavia. In addition to describing the beautiful traditional rugs and blankets of the great weavers of the Navajo tribe in the United States, the American chapters also examine in detail the early rugs of the 19th century in the United States.     Bibliographic information Title Rugs & Carpets of the World Editor Ian Bennett Edition 2nd ed, reprint, Hardback Publisher Ferndale Editions, ISBN , Length 352 pages
