Inspired by the traditional and beautiful weavings of the people of Central Asia, here are more than 25 projects featuring colorful, intricate geometric patterns. Ranging from large pieces such as rugs and cushions to smaller items like purses and curtain tie-backs, these needlepoint designs are based on kilims from Afghanistan, Anatolia (Turkey), and Persia (Iran). Background information on kilims and the symbolism behind their characteristic motifs enhance the beauty of these projects, all of which are done entirely in tent stitch. Full-color charts and photos and how-to instructions make these unique designs accessible to needleworkers of all levels of experience

An anthology of writings and photographs celebrating the contribution of one of the country's most distinguished and enduring travel writers, and one of the 20th century's greatest living explorers.From Library Journal:
Tacon and Wood aren't the firstAor the lastAcraft designers to adapt traditional ethnic textile designs to contemporary needlepoint. It would be difficult to choose between these books, as both are beautifully put together, featuring easy-to-stitch projects outstanding in both color and form. Wood's book includes 25 projects based on weavings from Afghanistan, Turkey, and Iran, while Tacon's book includes 43 designs, many for small pieces like pin cushions, glasses cases, needlecases, sachets, and greeting card insets. As is the case with all geometric patterns, these projects could be adapted to other textile crafts such as cross-stitch, tapestry weaving, and tapestry crochet. Recommended for public libraries.
