Review

Wallpaper has recently experienced something of a renaissance. After years of minimalism; of plastered walls painted in neutral colours, people are again coming round to the idea of individual expression in interior design. The enormous variety and scope that wallpaper allows for means that it is, at last, hip once more. The Cutting Edge of Wallpaper pays tribute to this exciting new trend, looking at the techniques, products and designers at the forefront of contemporary wallpaper design. Divided into chapters according to the characteristics of wallpaper (geometric, architectural, figurative and interactive/technical), the designers include Jane Gordon Clark, Neisha Crossland, Tracey Kendall, Timorous Beasties and over 70 others. Three essays look at the medium in depth. The first explores the history of wallpaper, and how it has evolved. A second looks at wallpaper today, and the third, by Charles Stuckey, looks at the crossover between wallpaper and fine art. A beautiful, vividly illustrated publication, this book is sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in design.

This book really surprised me because it went into the history of wallpaper in some depth in the introduction. I really enjoyed this because, although thorough, it wasn't too boring or dominant of the book as a whole. I felt that the designs shown in the book and wallpaper manufacturers were up to date (still appear in the latest magazines) and covered more mainstream as well as avant guarde styles. It was exactly what I expected which was fabulous!

Too far out for most. Not enough substance. This is more of wallpaper as modern art than as wall covering.
