Book Description

1 Feb 2005
Using over 450 vintage color photographs, this handsome album chronicles the pivotal years of rug hooking-from the 1950s through the mid-1980s. During this period, both women and men were enjoying the craft and hooking rugs in record numbers. From inside the halls of rug exhibits, readers will enjoy viewing the best that hookers of this era created. Included are lush floral motifs, Oriental-inspired patterns, intricate geometric designs, childhood themes, animal portraits, scenic landscapes, and so much more. A collector's paradise, an interior decorator's dream, a rug hooker's heaven, these meticulously crafted rugs-available at auctions, antiques and collectibles shows, estate and tag sales, flea markets, and on-line-are highly sought after today. Also included is carefully compiled information about the most popular hooked rug pattern makers of the day and those that started "something new."

5.0 out of 5 stars visual history 3 Mar 2008
By C. MacKean - Published on Amazon.com
The beautiful photographs in this book are a great inspiration for the modern day rugger. To see the color selections and the patterns of the past, what could be more inspiring. I loved that the mats were grouped into themes.

the book is too thick to be published in paperback. The spine of my book has already broken. However, the pictures are excellent.

This is not a how to book. It contains pictures of all types of hand hooked rugs during the past century. I learned a lot just looking at the photos. A fantastic source of inspiration.
