Very Good. Saddle-stapled booklet. Binding and contents are almost like new.; 8-1/4" Tall, 24pp. Covers are a little lighter than construction paper. HOUSEHOLD. "Several years ago an Anglo American took a book on Navajo weaving into Mexico and had the native weavers there produce copies of rugs, to the last detail in design. Some Navajos bought these rugs for their own use for they were less expensive than their own weaving. Many Anglos bought the rugs for the same reason. It became evident from growing interest in the Mexican-Navajo weaving situation that one should know specifically the differences between the two products. Noel Bennett came 'to the rescue, ' producing this small but valuable booklet with its important points of differences in the weaving details of the Mexican-woven versus the Navajo-made blanket or rug. In this booklet she makes clear the specific details of the two products, such as differences in wool, multiple warps at the very ends of the rug which give a ridged effect, and several warp groups at the sides of the pieces, the latter two distinguishing the Mexican woven piece. Only through a detailed understanding of Navajo weaving such as Noel Bennett has, knowledge in her mind and facility in her hands, could one establish these facets of difference. " Three pages of full-color reproductions of rugs plus 10 b/w illustrations (drawings & photos).
