"Oriental carpets have long been valued as works of art, and fine exaples are to be seen in museums and private collections throughout the world. These designs have been handed down from generation to generation of craftsmen, and carpets made by the traditional methods are now available widely, to be used and enjoyed in the home. This beautiful book is a comprehensive study, especially valuable as it concentrates on carpets currently available rather than on museum pieces. Nearly two hundred individual designs are described in detail, and the information has been gathered by the author, and the photographs taken, in the carpet-producing countries themselves." -Jacket.

    Oriental Carpets by Campana, Michele

    Cassell, London, 1988. First U.K. Edition. Paperback. As New/N/A. Illustrator: Photo's. black titles spine; a title in the "Cassell's Styles in Art" series; b/w. map of carpet-weaving countries; "While in the West carpets have been looked upon merely as floor coverings, in the East they have often been the principal item of domestic furniture, serving as beds, cushions, sofas, wall and door hangings. Many also have important religious functions. History, faith and culture are expressed in the innumerable variations of pattern and design. At the one extreme there is the simplicity which characterises the carpets of the nomadic Turkomans, at the other there is the inspired inventiveness of the priceless Ardebil carpet from Persia which once covered the tomb of a venerated ruler. In spite of centuries of poverty, tyranny and war, generations of weavers have pursued their craft with infinite skill and imagination. As well as giving their historical background, Michele Campana describes in detail how to recognise carpets from Persia, Anatolia, the Caucasus, Central Asia, China, Samarkand and India. Many of the carpets mentioned are shown in the magnificent colour illustrations, each of which has its own descriptive note. "; a tight, clean copy, incld. list of illustrations - 157 pages.
