Default Books on Oriental rugs

Hi all,

I'm getting ready to buy the Schurmann "Caucasian Rugs" book that I've wanted since the '80s. Are there any similar "classic" texts on Turkmen weavings?

Also, along those lines, do you like Jeff Boucher's "Balouchi Woven Treasures"?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Eric


Not up to the minute, but a very good place to start. I'm pretty sure it has the answers to all three of your questions.
