Fabulous collection of Turkoman main carpets. Originally published to coincide with the International Conference on Oriental Carpets in the spring of 2003, Bigger is Better - Main Carpets of the Turkmen is dynamic in its own right. An art book on CD, this catalog of exquisite Turkmen main carpets offers the viewer the capability of zooming in on any detail of the thirty rugs using the .PDF file format. Not only does this new format break the mold of art and carpet publications, but the exploration of one type of Turkmen weaving with tribal attributions, short descriptions, pointed references, and detailed technical analyses will establish this CD as a reference work of great value with an appeal to a wide audience.
Requires a CD-ROM drive and a pdf reader (Adobe Acrobat, Foxit Reader, etc.) or equivalent.
