A reprint of this volume, fourth in the Oriental Rugs series, serves as an introduction to the range of carpets and rugs from Turkey. The history of the region and the art of carpet weaving and knotting are explained and the various types and styles of rug produced are traced by means of the traditions and differing techniques found throughout the Anatolian peninsula. Turkey lies in a geographical position of some importance, separating as it does the Eastern and Westem cultures. Despite the proximity of the Persian influence, Turkish rug makers largely retained their own traditional motifs. The main text leads into a full colour pictorial catalogue illustrating rugs from the numerous towns and villages throughout Anatolia. Comprehensive and detailed captions describe some 225 examples, ranging from antique and very rare museum exhibits right through to good quality modem pieces which are readily available today. This comprehensive book provides definitive coverage of the rugs and carpets of Turkey. It should be a useful volume for lovers of fine carpets and should appeal to the expert as well as the inexperienced beginner.
