It is a book that you can leave on your coffee table as a wonderful treat for the eyes, or you can read the text and become that much more knowledgeable about a part of the world which continues to gain in strategic importance day by day.
An extraordinary synthesis, this book makes for a great gift to oneself or others.
Once you've gotten past the wonderful plates---which isn't easy: every page is a new delight---the text is equally fascinating, tracing a trade for a century and showing how both manufacturer and buyer changed in the process.
One of the prizes of my textile arts library!
