"Original flying carpets were formerly inanimate textiles ensorcelled by magical practitioners of some kind, and once released by, or escaped from, their masters, became the feral carpets of the Dark Ages. These degenerated into the wild flying carpets we know today, and it is with the few recorded sightings of these magnificent and playful carpets that this book deals."
-from the introduction

An album of flying carpet sightings through (made-up) history. Examples range from a sorcerer animating a carpet in 17th century Bulgaria, to a leather shag throw rug landing at Amsterdam Airport in 1982. There is a deceptively dry and academic introduction detailing the history, biology, and behavior of these rare events.

The book is bound in sky-blue paper, with paper titles pasted on the front and spine, and decorative endpapers.

Pat Sweet and the Bo Press make miniature illustrated books, maps, portfolios, journals and globes from 1/2" to 3". Subjects range from fans to werewolves to mathematics, but have common themes of curiosity, wonder, mystery, and delight. Member of the Miniature Book Society and IGMA.
