Oriental Carpet Design by P.R.J. Ford

Book Description

In this review, the author draws upon his experience in the trade, in order to demonstrate how to recognize the different structural and design features of oriental rugs and carpets. All the types made throughout the Orient - from the Balkans to Peking - are grouped here, not by place of manufacture but by design, illuminating the history of each pattern. The author shows the vital influence of the ethnographic backgrounds of the various carpet-producing centres over all important designs. He presents illustrations of contemporary examples and descriptions of key characteristics - construction, materials, sizes, colours - together with an area-by-area appraisal of the quality of modern production. An introductory account of the history and essential features of oriental carpets contributes to this volume's usefulness as a reference guide.
