5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Lakai Uzbek afficionados 21 July 2009
By Mom by the Bay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Althought the authors, Kate Fitz Gibbon and Andrew Hale, made sure the reader realizes that much that is classified by the trade as "Lakai" is produced by other Uzbek groups, for all but the most knowlegable these textiles are known as Lakai. But little else has been written or published and only a handfull of books on central Asian folk art mention them.
This well-written and beautifuly photographed book of a private collection now in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts deserved better marketing and wider distribution. I was surprised to find no image on Amazon, and no independant reviews elsewhere. I took a chance and got what turned out to be the best book on the subject to date.
