Booklist May 15, 1999
Is there ever anything completely new in design? British textile artist Wood borrows and adapts centuries-old motifs from the rug makers of central Asia, and then translates more than 25 different kilims into personal and homestyle needlepoint items. Flat-weave carpets from Afghanistan, Turkey, and Iran are emulated.

Chapter 1 provides a brief introduction to the geography and symbolism surrounding the weavings. Then each design, prefaced by a few sentences about its original provenance, includes a color photograph and a color graph as well as a list of materials and how-to-finish information. Great color combinations are featured, as are unique motifs and patterns, such as camels, peacocks, and two-headed unidentified animals.

A reader from London, UK
This is the only needlepoint book I have ever bought that had more than one or two designs that were worth making. The Magic Carpet, Tunisian and Oriental designs are all stunning and the author offers suggestions for multiple uses and colour schemes. I can't wait to get started!

from Booklist
Kooler and crew have developed 25 projects definitely worth a stitch or two. Most of the patterns will appeal to those with conservative, realism-in-needlepoint preferences, such as cabbage roses and hen and chicks ...all are executed in exquisite detail with appropriate subtle color demarcations. In addition to charts of Persian yarn needed and finished sizes and four-color graphs to follow, each pattern includes finishing instructions. ...everything in good taste. Metric equivalency chart appended.
