I first found this book in the IU art library when I was researching hand-hooked rugs. Now I have my own copy (thanks, half.com!) and can drool over the images whenever I want. The work in here blows me away! It's a huge shame that "rugs" largely fell off the radar in contemporary art after the 1970's (this book is from 1974)--however, it seems that is changing. There is too much opportunity here for this wealth of techniques to be ignored much longer.
