HALI 139, 2005

Last Word on Transylvania
The mystery of so-called ‘Transylvanian’ rugs is explained in a superb new book, Antique
Ottoman Rugs in Transylvania
, written, compiled and published by Stefano Ionescu, with
additional texts by Alberto Boralevi and Andrei Kertesz. According to Michael Franses, the
book is beautifully produced, thoroughly researched, extremely well written, and a ‘must-
have’ for all rug libraries and carpet bibliophiles
