Book Description Dutton Studio Books, New York, 1993. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 8.5 x 11 Paperback in New condition; Illustrated by 114 color plates; GWO 1059. American edition of the ICOC IV exhibition. Similar to the 1983 UK edition "Carpet Magic". Jon Thompson's guide to the world of rugs and carpets received enthusiastic acclaim from general readers and students alike as the best introduction to the subject yet published. By discussing carpets in the context of the people who weave them, the book makes this complex and often jargon-ridden subject easily accessible. Using a scheme for dividing all carpets into four categories - tribal, cottage industry, workshop and court - Jon Thompson immediately makes plain for the less knowledgeable carpet-lover how to begin to trace the likely origins of carpets, to understand how they are made, and to appreciate how and why patterns differ. For he firmly believes that a real grasp of the subject depends not on learning names but on a much broader understanding. Written with unusual clarity and avoiding all use of jargon, this invaluable book contains more than 180 outstanding color illustrations. There are maps, a glossary, and a detailed guide for buyers and sellers - a humorous and often irreverent review of the trade that contains much valuable advice.; 2; 176 pp. Bookseller Inventory # BOOKS000811I
