72 pages. Kent McManis and fellow trader Robert Jeffries have provided us with the definitive introduction to one of the most popular American Indian arts -- Navajo rug weaving. It covers development from the seventeenth century through innovations of the craft today--everything from the classic Chief's Blankets, to the famous Two Grey Hills designs, to the latest in pictorial rugs. Of great help to the new collector is the list of standards in judging the quality of a rug and advice for its proper care. Fully illustrated with stunning examples of over fifty rug types.
