HASH(0xa2aefde0) out of 5 stars carpet book 15 Feb. 2012
By carpet lover - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Story of Carpets is one of the few excellent works done by a native Iranian, educated and now living in The United Kingdom. I have seen and had so many books on Persian/Iranian carpets by Western scholars, but E. Sakhai's work is different . Because of short of space, I just recommend it to fine Persian carpet lovers to get this book and enjoy it for a long time.Well done my countryman,congratulations.
