Description - Hooked Rugs Today by Amy Oxford

Showcasing the talent of some of the finest living artists in the field, this armchair exhibit features over 625 outstanding color photographs of hooked rugs. A multitude of subjects are portrayed: the love of family, country, home, children, pets, flowers, history, wildlife, hobbies, and holidays, to name but a few. There are animals, both real and make-believe, rugs that tell a story, and rugs that make you laugh. They run the gamut: classic forms to abstracts, traditional to contemporary, rugs for the floor and rugs for the wall. Some deal with difficult issues, like war, terrorism, death, and grief. Others rejoice in capturing the moments that make life sweet: bringing a newborn baby home from the hospital, dancing the tango, celebrating a wedding, and playing the cello. There are many surprises, including a dog wearing a party hat, a whale spouting a bouquet of flowers, and a sheep knitting her own sweater. This wonderful book is a celebration of the love of rug hooking.
