Rug hooking is an art form that's a joy to create. Over 570 color photographs chronicle a wide variety of rugs being hooked today, putting to rest any notion that no one hooks rugs anymore. Contemporary hooking artists from all over the U.S., Canada, and beyond present hooked abstract designs, animals, commemorative pieces, landscapes, portraits, nautical themes, traditional patterns, and primitive styles. They include more than floor coverings; some are wall hangings and others hooked furniture.

Of interest to collectors, textile artists, and dealers. Be inspired to join this growing creative outlet!
