GWO 2353. A scarce scholarly study of Turkmen embroidery. "Peter and Mugul Andrews gained much knowledge of the nomadic way of life during their stay with the Turkmen of Iran. Their experiences have been put to good use in this monograph by providing a stepping stone to understanding the relationship of embroidery design and technique on costume worn by nomads." -Karen Finch, of the Textile Conservation Centre.
