Bought for me, so it was taken away until Christmas Day. Just glanced through it beforehand and hope it is a new skill I can master with my current loom. Too early to give this a five star, though I gather it is THE book for woven rugs.

Excellent illos explain unusual techniques & designs 19 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Twenty-two years after his famous "Techniqes of Rug Weaving", Collingwood produced a worthy sequel in this 1990 book, full of new ideas. Close-up photos of small samples, large detailed diagrams, and clearly-written text convey Collingwood's enthusiasm for his craft and lead the weaver through the methods needed to achieve some truly stunning effects, useful not just for rug weavers but for anyone interested in unusual handweaving methods. (Another book to seek is "Small Webs", a Danish (?) book for users of small table looms who want to create things no machine could produce.) The author's suggestions for altering and strengthening a loom struck me as sensible, especially since the loom I use was handmade by a musician friend from parts that were almost entirely "found objects" -- it includes bean poles and a post from a fallen street sign.
Large-format hc with color dust jacket, 160pp.

Rug Weaving Techniques Beyond the Basics 9 Dec. 2010

I had borrowed the book from the Library. Because the explanations and layout were extremely clear and easy to follow, I had to have my own copy. Found it easier to follow than his first book.

Rug Weaving Techniques: Beyond the Basics

by Peter Collingwood

"With concise instructions and explanatory diagrams, the author explores new techniques for plain weave, twill and block weaves. The three-end block weave is fully described, especially the application of it to shaft-switching. The samples illustrated have been specially woven for the book and photographed by David Cripps, who is renowned for his work in the craft field.

Rug Weaving Techniques will inspire as much as it informs and will be indispensable to any weaver's library. The book includes 71 colour plates of his rug samples and 139 clear black-and-white diagrams." This book is an absolute must for any rug weaver!
