By Peter D. Tillman VINE VOICE on July 17, 2016
Format: Paperback
This old but still useful guidebook was written by a former curator at the Maxwell Museum at the UNM in Albuquerque. She gathered data and photos of about 700 Navajo rugs made from the 1890s to WW2, intending to make a practical guidebook for collectors, since up to the time she wrote the book (1981), most guidebooks covered older 19th century rugs, which are now priced well beyond the means of most collectors.

The book includes 16 color plates and 61 b&w photos, all clearly reproduced. More recent books have many more color illustrations. Her descriptions are clear, accurate, and especially useful for beginning collectors.

Unfortunately, good rugs made from around 1900 to 194o are now themselves priced beyond the means of most collectors. A similar guidebook for rugs from the second half of the 20th century is what you might need. Still, have a look at this one if you come across a copy.

Happy reading--
Peter D. Tillman
