Although I do not claim to be any particular authority on carpets, I have been involved in a carpet society for some years. I have seen many carpet books; this is undoubtedly the most spectacular. Its main glories are firstly the wonderful quality of the rugs on display, secondly the exceptionally realistic reproductions of the carpets and thirdly the excellent general standard of the printing and presentation.
There has been some criticism from experts about the written contribution of Heinrich Kirchheim, but the average reader would not be any the wiser. It seems fine to me. But you will probably want this book for its illustrations more than anything else. This large volume is supposedly a limited edition although mine is not numbered. It is well worth the investment.
