1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By K. Platt TOP 50 REVIEWER on 2 April 2014
This is the fourth volume cataloguing the al-Sabah collection of textiles in Kuwait. It features 50 entries of mainly textile fragments but also details of carpets from the pre-Islamic world and early Islamic world. Part 1 deals with carpets from the Sasanian Period, whilst Part 2 looks at Sasanian and Sogdian Textiles. The latter are divided into various types of animals such as birds, mammals and mythological creatures. The Sasanian fragments are early pile carpets from the second to eighth century AD. The images vary in size as do the fragments. The reproduction is excellent and the colour of the textiles remains vibrant. The imagery is interesting. The text is confined to an introduction and descriptions of each entry. This stunning book is of interest to those who love eastern carpets and textiles.
