HASH(0x8bdaec44) out of 5 stars An Encyclopedia of the Tibetan Tiger Rug 26 May 2005
By Hallstatt Prince - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Four and a half stars.

Mimi Lipton has done the rug community a great service in putting together this wonderful volume. It is in no way a definitive work as the rugs took on many different forms (see for example the Bernheimer Tiger rug offered for sale at the famous Christies auction in 1996) and there are some repetition of subtypes. Nevertheless it is quite an amazing book and makes a good contribution to the literature on oriental rugs.

Many cultures of the East valued the pelt of the tiger. But leave it to the Tibetans to come up with a compassionate and ecologically wise solution to the demand of these prized skins.

This also makes for a great coffee table book.

Recommended.
HASH(0x8bdb02c4) out of 5 stars Well worth the effort 22 Sept. 2012
By GiovanniGF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Not an easy book to find (I ordered mine from a used bookstore in London), but very much worth the search - there are 108 full-color, full-page illustrations of these stunningly beautiful, very rare rugs. I can't recommend the book enough.
