LE TAPIS/THE RUG UN ART FONDAMENTAL LE TAPIS PRCD DE NOTES ETHNOGRAPHIQUES PAR ARNOLD VAN GENNEP / A FUNDAMENTAL ART.
A survey of kilims which starts slowly: what a kilim is, who makes them, how to buy (and sell), and then works up to a fairly detailed description of current, and sometimes former production for both major and minor (Albania, Algeria, Iraq) kilim producing areas.
General guide for a beginner; on modern rugs; the range of coverage is extensive, from Bulgaria and Egypt to the traditional areas, so depth is sometimes lacking, but the print is small and the author packs in a lot - thus 3 paragraphs on gold, sun and luster washes; there is forthright advice on value and resale possibilities of specific rug types.
