    schema:reviewBody ""Rugs & Carpets begins by tracing the development of carpet-making and introduces the immense range of rugs and carpets produced since 1800. Being able to identify rugs and carpets is an important part of understanding them and a useful illustrated chart shows how to decipher weavings from different countries. There are also helpful explanatory diagrams and photographs that illustrate the different techniques involved in carpet-making, as well as information on designs, styles and motifs." "This book journeys to all the major carpet-making regions, including the Caucasus, Turkestan, Turkey, Persia, India, China, Tibet, Europe, North Africa and North America. Handsome maps depict the major production areas of each region and the author, Andrew Middleton, closely examines rugs and carpets made by village and city workshops, as well as tribal weavings." "Buying and caring for your rug or carpet are major considerations. At the end of the book is a section on where (and where not) to buy rugs and carpets and how to buy at auction or from a dealer. The author also provides useful advice on care and restoration, plus tips on display."--Jacket." ;
