In "Modern Hooked Rugs", needlecraft historian and expert Linda Rae Coughlin has created a compendium of 540 rugs crafted by 292 of the very best contemporary rug hooking artists. A veritable treasury of beautiful images, here featured are rugs made by a group of needlecraft artisans exploring common themes, as well as series or topic-related rugs by individual artists. Some of the rugs showcased are from The American Folk Art Museum's 'Icons of America' contest, others are rugs from noted and notable rug hooking needlecrafters right along side rug hooking fiber artists making their debut. Each photo example comes with a succinct and informative caption making "Modern Hooked Rugs" a compelling addition for personal, professional, academic, and community library Needlecraft collections in general, and Hooked Rug reference lists in particular.
