Abstract:

The seven authors of this lavishly illustrated book, each of them a recognized expert, lead us step by step through their respective fields, revealing the secrets of the 'trade', explaining production and restoration, exploring unresolved problems and their fascination. Unlike many books on the subject, Great Carpets of the World covers the subject throughout its historical and cultural spectrum as well as in great depth, from the remote origins of knotted fibers through the techniques of large-scale manufacture. Carpets from the great weaving centers of Turkey and Persia are examined at length, along with the custom of combining calligraphy with abstract and naturalistic design. Also discussed are Indian carpets of the Moghul Empire, the carpets of China, France, Great Britain, Spain, the Caucasus, and North Africa. A special bonus is the full and clear technical chapter, which presents and explains every aspect of carpet weaving - knotted pile, kilim and tapestry, and even needlework, concluding with a revue of the various means of conservation and presentation of old and antique carpets.
