Humble origins have not confined hooked rugs to simple dwellings. As the popularity of the craft grew and the appeal of the hooked rug became apparent, it traveled uptown to cushion the footsteps of the rich and famous. An international craft, rug hooking has become a full-fledged art form through the dedication, creativity, inspiration, and diligence of its devotees. This beautiful book is filled with over 300 lavish color photographs of hooked rugssome from the nation's most elegant homes, some with fascinating histories, some old and others new. The traits they have in common are their techniques and uses, all having been created and displayed with tremendous love. Jessie Turbayne includes many true stories of hooked rugs in exploring the craft's background. She weaves together its technical details, the materials used through the years, biographies of great "hookers," and photographs of the most striking pieces you will every see.
