Qarajeh to Quba: Rugs and Flatweaves from East Azarbayjan and the Transcaucasus

By Raoul E. Tschebull. Photography by Don Tuttle

This book features the author’s scholarship about a careful selection of 19th-century knotted pile carpets and flatwoven covers from his own collection, which has been built up over a period of more than five decades. Most of the rugs are previously unseen and unpublished.

This beautifully illustrated book also includes a general introduction to the region, which straddles the present-day border between northwestern Iran and the Republic of Azerbaijan, setting the context for the focused presentation of some 70 examples, each with the author's comments about design, structure, technique and attribution, providing a matrix within which dating can be considered. In-country field experience colours some of his views and extracts from his field notes and accompanying images complete the narrative.
