About this title


This book is intended to help you examine the rugmaking styles and methods of some other cultures and apply them to the most contemporary techniques ~ needlepoint, latch hooking, rya, and punch hooking. You will find a wide diversity of period and contemporary designs, ranging from bold geometrics of nomadic mideastern tribes and the graceful court arabesques of Persia to the equally striking rya rugs and hangings of Scandinavia and the bold and imaginative styles of the contemporary art market. You will see many photographs of historic and antique rugs and carpets, and find pages of design adaptations ready for you to work. You will learn how rugs and hangings were made in their own cultures, and by what contemporary technique they can most faithfully be translated. Because loom weaving is a complicated and technical craft requiring its own set of design blueprints, the rugmaking methods in this book are arbitrarily limited to needlepoint, latch hooking, rya, and punch hooking. The design adaptations throughout will suggest typical or characteristic color schemes and rugmaking methods most closely related to the original product.

Terms of Sale:

Private merchant account, no taxes on sales and a standard shipping fee in accordance to rates.

Shipping Terms:

U.S. Shipping:
We ship our books according to media rate through the US Postal Services. This is the cheapest way for us to ship you your books. We will contact you if shipping will cost more than the listed price. Please note that heavier and larger-sized books will cost more to ship as the general shipping cost is used for average-weight/sized books. If you would like your book insured, specifically packed or delivered faster it will cost more and you will need to contact us.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.

International Shipping:
As a standard for shipping, we ship all our books in a Global Priority Flat Rate mailer envelope. This costs just a couple bucks more than ground and will get there in 4 to 10 business days instead of the one to two months it would for Ground. Priority in a box costs a bit more (about 17.50,) but has that added bit of protection. We're more than happy to ship Ground for $9.00 or Express for $30.00. Let us know what you prefer if the option isn't listed.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.
