"The Chilkat Dancing Blanket is the life story of a magnificent woven robe which graced the shoulders of Indian nobility from Yakutat, Alaska to Vancouver Island, British Columbia. From the legendary origins of this weaving, the story unfolds to tell of the women who wove it, of thesource and inspiration for the designs which adorn it, and of the pride an d esteem in which it was held by the society which gave it birth. The Dancing Blanket was a robe reserved for ceremony. The remarkable photographs of Tony Hunt performing the Headdress Dance afford a rare opportunity to see this blanket in its full glory, alive and dancing. The story does not stop with an overview of the Dancing Blanket, but delves into the mysteries of its creation. Mountain goat wool and cedar bark were spun and dyed and then woven into intricate, stylized designs. In this magnificently illustrated text, author Cheryl Samuel presents a detailed description of the weaving techniques which were perfected by the Tlingit women. Photographs of Dancing Blankets from many museum collections and of weavings in progress are knitted together with beautiful drawings in order to illustrate this complicated process. The Chilkat Dancing Blanket interweaves legend, history, and technique and is presented in honor of the women who created this exquisite art form." (from the dj).

146 SMITH, Joyce Ronald Taaniko : Maori Hand-Weaving. First Printing in dustjacket
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1975, ISBN:068414204X 
SMITH, Joyce Ronald. Taaniko : Maori Hand-Weaving. New York : Charles Scribner's Sons, (1975). First Printing. Pp (4),5-96. Illustrated. Index. 4to, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. "No tools, no loom! That discovery produced one of the author's first delights in taaniko, Maori hand-weaving that allows for great freedom of design and use of color. Maoris, the original inhabitants of New Zealand reserved taaniko for the decoration of clothes, but this book is truly unique in adapting taaniko for the creation of wall hangings, rugs, belts, etc., as well as three-dimensional objects. The possibilities are endless, as the author shows. Joyce Smith breathes new life into this ancient weaving method, and her book is the outgrowth of her discoveries and teaching experiences in New Zealand. The taaniko process is described with great clarity by employing a useful combination of photographs and sketches to teach, step by step, this simple weaving technique. It isinexpensive (no equipment is needed), immensely rewarding and adaptable, a spictures of the author's own weaving show, and it can be learned very easily. Taaniko combines the flexibility of macrame, the beauty of lace-making,and the colorful verve of a primitive weaving. In many ways, similar to br aiding, the weaver makes the rules, and the combinations of colors and motifs are endless. Taaniko also provides a glimpse into the culture of the Maori people, while the dramatic beauty of New Zealand is reflected in accompanying paintings paintings by H. Lane Smith, the author's husband." (from the dj).

160 TURNER, James NOURAIE, Iraj Persian Carpet : The Vision of a Whole People. First Edition in dustjacket,signed by both authors
Tabar, 2007, ISBN:9780978418700 
TURNER, James, and Iraj NOURAIE. The Persian Carpet : The Vision of a WholePeople. (Canada) : Tabar, (2007). First Edition. Pp (6),i-vi,(2),[1]-212,( 6). Illustrated in Colour. Index. 4to, illustrated white paper covered boards (hardcover), lettered in red. "In an interwoven way, this book explores the sources of Persian carpet designs in Greek metaphysical philosophy, Islamic mysticism or Sufism, Shi'a Islam and Iranian folk beliefs. The influence of the third- century philosopher Plotinus is given special attention. Symnbolic meanings of major design elements are derived from the practices of Sufism. The "vision of a whole people" summarized the aim of W.B.Yeats tocreate a coherent literary and visual culture which would unite religious, aesthetic and practical concerns. The authors present an imaginative argum ent that Persian carpets express this ideal of a universally shared culture. Imitating a spiritual pilgrimage, the journey begins with a relearning ofthe method of symbolic analogy that underlies Persian carpet design. For P lotinus, a comprehensive vision or theoria is the destination t the spiritual traveler. In Sufism, this is an earthly revelation of the divine pattern. In modern 1 seeks a unified perception of ordinary reality. Communicatingon emotional and intellectual levels, The Persian Carpet: The Vision of a Whole People encourages a personal response to central themes of Iranian culture. More than technical knowledge, the goal is an identification with the human mootivatons and social concerns embodied in the carpet." (from the dj). Contents : Foreword (by Dr. Fazlollah Reza). Preface. 1. Yeki Bud,YekiNabud. 2. The Persian Carpet. 3, The Wild Rue. 4. The King's Threshold. 5. The Golden Door. 6. The Vision of a Whole People. 7. After-image.
