: 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.
An easy one, Eiland's book on Chinese rugs as it includes a structural perspective which is so necessary to understanding the dates as copying is so prevalent.
