: I'd like to get started compiling a "Best" list which, maybe, we could add somewhere appropriate on the Site. The list should be compiled with the NOVICE collector in mind. (Once someone has pissed away a couple years of his/her life learning about rugs, they aren't going to take our collective judgment anyway.) Naturally, "best" is subjective so nominations should be supported with opinion.
: If for some reason you'd rather not cast your vote publicly, feel free to e-mail your choice to me. I'll add it to the tally. Most votes wins. Decision of the judge is final. I'm the judge.
The Textile Museum exhibition catalogue, the only book which has some real, though incomplete, information on the subject. If you just like pictures, try Kuloy's small paperback, lots of pics with relatively little info.
