Techniques is a book I thought wouldn't exist. I searched in vain for books on rug weaving with decent technical content, then I found this, and although it is not for the hobbyist or amateur, I suggest you buy it - once the terminology sinks in, nothing is clearer, though the twill with 8 shafts is not easy.
The section on knotted rugs is very useful, and has helped enormously. Also, rug finishing is dealt with very comprehensively, and includes many types of folk or ethnic finishing techniques.
The only omission - a weaver's knot. Peter shows a double one, but not the single knot. And a glossary would have been nice... but then, it is supposed to be a book for the experienced weaver.
Very definitely 5 stars

A classic book that will never go out-of-date. Invaluable for experienced weavers, novices, and anyone who wants to understand rugs and rug-making. It's a keeper - not selling mine!

Arrived when it said it would, and is what it says it is. Very pleased!
