    The core of the book is devoted to the specific characteristics of region, tribe and kilim type. Four major sections using much original research document kilims from the North African countries of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia; the enormously important kilims of Anatolia; the riches of Persia and the Caucasus; and the creations of the Afghan and Central Asian nomads.

    Chapters on new kilims and the use of kilims as bags and trappings as well as rugs together with a reference guide to collecting, care and further study conclude the standard work for textile collectors and enthusiasts.

    Alastair Hull has travelled extensively in Afghanistan and Iran for more than thirty years collecting and studying kilims. His special area of interest is the weaving of Central Asia. He is the author, with Nicholas Barnard, of Living with Kilims . José Luczyc-Wyhowska opened London's Kilim Warehouse in 1982 and has made numerous journeys to the remotest parts of North Africa and Asia in pursuit of fine kilims. She specializes in the flatweaves of Anatolia. Nicholas Barnard 's publications include Living with Kilims , Living with Decorative Textiles , Traditional Indian Textiles (with John Gillow, 1991) and Living with Folk Art , all published by Thames & Hudson.
