Kilim on p. 86-88 in Pelz's book

Dear People,

Michael's Salon refers to a kilim on pages 86-88 of Pelz's book. It is presented almost as an upper border to the pages, stretching from one to another as a long, narrow band. In order to provide a reasonable impression of the piece without losing all the detail, I show here an image of most of it plus a detail of one end.

This is probably a good point for me to apologize to Michael. He worked very hard at preparing this Salon. As with every Salon that goes up, I did the final editing. Unfortunately, the pressures of semester's end and traveling to ACOR left me little time to do the editing job that the essay deserved. One piece of sloppiness on my part is that he refers to the relationship of the price of Pelz's book to the quality of the color reproduction. His intent was to imply that the color reproduction is not very good, but at the modest price of the book, this is unavoidable. What came out of my editing is the implication that the book is worth its high price because the color reproduction is so good. I apologize to Michael for this.

Candy Canes


The underlying similarity between these kilims and the one Michael restored is the Candy Cane red-white outline to the field designs. It is unusual and probably does link all of these examples.
