Anatolian (Turkish) utilitarian flatweaves are still relatively unknown and under-appreciated in much of North America.
I cannot but think this is also an under-valued publication.
The book defines a basic lifestyle supporting flatweaves, and also explains necessary materials... Wool and the loom, as well as colours, dyeing & techniques without using complex terms. This is beneficial for someone with more than a beginning interest in flatweaves.
Among my absolute favorites are the MUT KILIMS... As detailed in Plates 56A, 56B, 56C & 56D. These are weavings of the Taurus Mountains well known for their strong tribal influences. Typically named after Mut, (former Claudiopolis) a small town situated in an important pass in the southern mountains between Konya and Silifke. The Turkic / Turkoman traditions of color and designs are retained in these weavings to a much greater extent than most other regions.
The binding, supporting descriptions, paper quality and particularly the exceptional picture close-ups surprises me this book had not received a review (until now).
I really like this book! It is certainly worth-while with insights for a beginner, novice or even useful as a reference for the advanced.
