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
