GWO 1611. This uncommon book focuses on Kazakh decorative arts and handicrafts that would furnish their yurts. Illustrations include 105 piled and flatwoven rugs, felts, woven trappings and embroideries. Russian and Kazakh text with an unhelpful English summary extolling the virtues of Soviet block housing but allowing for the yurts' place as tourist traps.
