For centuries, rugs and carpets have been highly valued for their beauty and craftsmanship, but for many they still remain a mystery, with the wide variety of styles and sheer number of production centres often causing confusion. With a glorious collection of colour photographs and a lively text, 'Rugs & Carpets' explores and explains the story behind these objects in a way that is authoritative yet accessible.

This absorbing and inspiring book includes antique rugs and carpets from Persia, the Caucasus, China, Tibet, Turkey, Turkestan and India, as well as Europe, North Africa and North America. It also provides advice on identifying rugs and carpets and an explanation of weaving techniques, the designs and motifs used and the cultural background to their development, as well as tips on buying, restoring, caring for and displaying a collection.
