Format: Hardcover
This book offers an excellent introduction to historical rug weaving centres of China including Tibet. Good colour photos of rugs and well written text in a pleasing format - not just a catalogue of different types as are most rug guides. For collectors this book offers really useful tips on the characteristics and imagery of older and antique Chinese rugs. Many of the examples shown in the book can occasionally be found through usual collector channels such as auctions, a few small collection centres/warehouses in China or dealers in Hong Kong and elsewhere. Pity it is out of print but possibly the title does not reflect its really useful coverage as a reference source e.g. a better one might be "Guide to older and antique Chinese rugs and carpets".
