Default Advice on books

Could I ask the experts what books they would recommend. I have a small collection of rugs and a reasonable knowledge of the basics i.e. I can recognise most of the standard caucasian types, I know my Ersari from my Tekke and Salor etc on the Turkoman front and can recognise a Qashqai, Hamadan etc.

I am mainly interested in tribal rugs, authentic old rugs made to be used and not for export although I appreciate that many great rugs were made to sell.

I have done some basic repairs and so have an intimate knowledge of some rugs construction.
I want to reaffirm my knowledge of the basics and gain some expertise in Kurdish and other tribal weavings too.
