    the book is too thick to be published in paperback. The spine of my book has already broken. However, the pictures are excellent.

    This is not a how to book. It contains pictures of all types of hand hooked rugs during the past century. I learned a lot just looking at the photos. A fantastic source of inspiration.

    The beautiful photographs in this book are a great inspiration for the modern day rugger. To see the color selections and the patterns of the past, what could be more inspiring. I loved that the mats were grouped into themes.
