First, thanks Marvin.

Not on ebay UK or ebay USA, but 'elsewhere' for $14 on up. Thanks for the tip Andy.

Thirdly, just received in mail today Elena Tsareva's book 'Turkmen Carpets; The Neville Kingston Collection' (published 2016).

One word = STUNNING! (And it doesn't cost an arm and a leg; well, maybe part of an arm, but seems real value for money IMHO!)

Pic below from blurb on back cover (unfortunately poorly scanned be me I might add!).
