All About Carpets: A Consumer Guide Total Hits - 934  |  Hits Today - 1Rating:   Rating Average (8)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating

Householders who face an array of carpeting materials with confusing specifications will find help in this primer. Revere, an experienced carpet inspector, lucidly untangles carpet manufacture: yarn types, styles, textures and dyeing techniques are evaluated. He explains how to choose a carpet for particular requirements and how to select underlay and and a professional installer, leaving final selection to individual needs and decorating preferences. Stout-hearted do-it-yourselfers will appreciate his thorough instructions for carpet installation, and almost all householders can benefit from the maintenance procedures suggested. Revere also spells out how to remedy typical carpet defects, such as shedding and roll crush marks, and offers the cost-conscious useful advice on how to combat odors, repair burns and complain effectively to distributors. Yet his reluctance to recommend carpet types or manufacturers sets limits on the usefulness of his "consumer guide." Illustrated.

American Hooked and Sewn Rugs : Folk Art UnderfootTotal Hits - 407  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating

In 1974 Joel and Kate Kopp were guest curators for the ground-breaking and very popular exhibition of hooked rugs held at the Museum of American Folk Art in New York. In that exhibition and in this book, first published in 1975, then expanded and reissued in 1985, the Kopps brought a new eye to the field and showed how the primitive imagery that appears in these rugs often parallels other categories of folk art. With over 250 illustrations, nearly 200 of them in color, the authors trace the development of the hooked rug, from its origins in eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century yarn-sewn bed rugs to twentieth-century examples of hooked rugs.
