Auspicious Carpets: A Tibetan View of Aesthetics by Ted Worcester
This seminal article on Tibetan carpets by Ted Worcester article first appeared in The Nepalese-Tibetan Carpet, edited by John Frederick, a special issue for the carpet trade published by Nepal Traveller, January 1993; one of a series of issues on Himalayan carpets. Asianart.com will be publishing further articles from this now rare series.

For those interested, there is some nice Indian material on display too.
