Hi Jeff,

Kings, Heroes and Lovers is a book by Parviz Tanavoli that focuses on figural rugs with royalty figures (mainly the shahs), characters from Persian literature, religious figures (dervishes, etc) and a few Persian lion rugs.

It also has his exceptionally well done chapter on rug structure with very good illustrations.

I bought it because I have a couple rugs with dervishes (and their paraphernalia) on them, and a Ferdows rug with the Khusraaw & Shirin folk story motif on it, and I was interested in learning more about them.


We'll be moving back in New England in a month; then it won't be so easy to find such deals....
