Synopsis

Edwards, a leading figure in the rug business, rose to the top of his profession and became managing director of the legendary Oriental Carpet Manufacturers based in Turkey. In this unique book, containing over four-hundred images and an eight page color plate section, he shares his invaluable knowledge and takes the reader on a diverse and colorful journey through history, showcasing the vast range of carpets woven in Persia from 1850 through to the twentieth century. He explores the rich diversity and elaborateness of colors and designs available, from the traditional to the more modern and explores regional variations, styles, and terminologies. Inside these pages you will find detailed information on different symbols and motifs, discussions on knots, weaving and dyeing, and what to look for in terms of quality. Presented in an informative and accessible style, Edwards' love of the product and the industry shine through in his writing, presenting the reader with expert advice and knowledge as well as painting a fascinating cultural and historical landscape. This is a timeless book presented in a beautiful new package, and is a must-have for anyone interested in Persian carpets.
