I bought Tribal Rugs together with Oriental Rugs: A Buyer's Guide. I was disappointed to find that they are both the same book with different titles. The book is a work of scholarship suitable for academic study. As such it did not fulfil my needs since what I needed was a suitable reference work to enable me to distinguish between types and quality of carpet to enable be to make a more informed decision in buying a replacement carpet for my conservatory.ally needed something shorter and with more commercial type information that was more accessible. I really need something shorter with more commercial type information that was more accessible.
Easy to read, to understand, full of "real" informations. Every time one has a doubt about the subject, this book can give at least an answer. Warmly recommended, if you have of course wondered sometimes what is that makes an oriental rug so special to attract your attention.
