Overview

The tradition of rug hooking is alive and kicking in the Heart of Dixie. Through 844 images, meet the people behind these hooked rugs of art, including a Hollywood great that gave it all up to hook rugs in Georgia. Be incarcerated with Mississippi hookers at Jail House Rock. Visit a Tennessee home with an all rug-hooking d�cor. Meet a Southern Tasha Tudor who is "the" expert on natural dyeing. Take a look back at rug hooking in rural Alabama between the two World Wars, and see what was considered elegant and all the rage in 1940s Louisiana. Rug patterns and original designs are also chronicled here: lush floral motifs, intricate geometrics, Oriental and Persian styles, impressionistic portraits, scenic landscapes, and glimpses of the Old South. This is a great reference book for all rug hooking enthusiasts, fiber artists, folk art lovers, collectors, history buffs, and lovers of anything Deep South.
