About This Item

This is a wonderful book with both black and white and color photos.

Estelle says "The art of rugmaking in America from Colonial times to the present is here described in an exciting and informative text. Rugmaking developed through the need of the colonists to cover their damp earth floors and became not only a necessity but an expression of beauty. From the bare beginnings of rag and braided rugs American women were soon making beautiful knitted, tufted, embroidered and hook(ed) rugs. American rugs are a tribute to the ingenuity and artistry of the colonists and those who followed them..."

Full of inspiration, this is a delightful and informative used hardcover book. Note: Cover may be different from photo above.
