: : I notice that several contributors have cited the Ikat book as one of the best rug books, but it really isn't about rugs. If we admit this book into consideration, we should also admit all other books on textiles.

: Fair point. I'd like to think this is why I initially omitted it from my list. I do not have any solution as to what is or is not a rug book. Is a book on woven structure a rug book? Is a book on kilims?
: Regards, Michael
Michael, I'll accept 'Woven Structures' because it deals in a substantial manner with structures found in rugs. I'll accept kilim because they are generally thought of as rugs and are often used on the floor. Not so ikats, susanes, pre-columbian shrouds, cherpis, orales, etc. etc.
