'Bible' status for those interested in this type of thing, I would have liked to have seen a little more about production techniques and technical information...small tip, use a magnifying glass or a strong pair of reading glasses, the print is pretty small (and there's lots of it!)

My friend likes to visit Stately Homes and often remarked on how interesting the wallpaper was at these houses, much to her teenage sons dismay!

So, with Christmas approaching thought I would take a chance with this book, it arrived very fast and considering how dull it may sound, I actually thought it was a very interesting and informative book - I didn't know how fascinating the history of wallpaper could be :-) Good book if you fancy something a bit different.

The frontside is a little "used" but OK

Excellent Resource! 4 Sept. 2013
By Robyne Melia - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book is brilliant. My husband is a watercolourist and I make rugs and draw too. The book is beautiful and we use it often. It always seems to be propped open for something or other and we have countless post-it notes sticking out the top.
The illustrations are well selected. A must have for designers. I also bought The World Of Ornament, which is really terrific and useful, but had I owned this at the time I would have stuck with this. It's condensed and lovely.

Many Colorful Illustrations 29 Dec. 2009
By Loretta English - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book is not only informative, the illustrations are excellent and include many that are not in most wallpaper books.
I hestitated because of the price, then decided to buy a used one for considerably less money. It's as good as new!

One of the better books on wallpaper 19 Feb. 2013
By Portia Iversen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Great historical information and some excellent images. My only disappointment was that so many images were in black and white - but supposed that this was due to color photography not being invented yet, although some of the older engraved or illustrated images seemed like they could have been shown in color. Overall a comprehensive look at the history wallpaper and one of the better books on the subject. Quite readable as well.
